Abbyland Foods Recalls Frozen Turkey Sausage Patties Products Due to Misbranding and Undeclared Allergen
Abbyland Foods, an Abbotsford, Wis., establishment, is recalled approximately 11,800 pounds of frozen turkey meatballs that are labeled as turkey sausage patties due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.
Soy Found In Recalled Product, Not Labeled
The product contains soy, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label, officials say.
"The problem was discovered when the establishment notified FSIS that a food service customer notified them of a labeling issue after they opened a box of frozen turkey sausage patties and discovered turkey meatballs instead. The meatballs contain soy protein concentrate, while the sausage patties label does not declare soy as an ingredient," the FSIS stated in its recall notice.
