174K pounds of beef recalled for undeclared milk

WASHINGTON - Maid-Rite Specialty Foods has recalled approximately 174,000 pounds of their beef products because of misbranding and undeclared allergens.

According to a recall notice on the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) website, the recalled products contain milk and that milk is not listed on the labels. The raw and ready-to-eat products were made between March 13 and May 26, 2017, and the beef was shipped to institutional locations throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Maid-Rite said the problem was discovered June 6 when they were notified from one of their ingredient suppliers that the bread crumbs they used potentially contained undeclared milk. FSIS said there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions from eating the products, but anyone concerned about an injury or illness is advised to contact a healthcare provider.
