WASHINGTON, April 21, 2023 - Abbyland Foods, an Abbotsford, Wis., establishment, is recalling 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 today. The product contains soy, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.
The frozen, fully cooked turkey meatball products labeled as turkey sausage patties were produced March 3, 2023. The following products are subject to recall [view labels (PDF)]:
- 5-lb. unlabeled bags in 10-pound labeled boxes of "Jennie-O FULLY COOKED TURKEY SAUSAGE PATTIES" with lot code 06223.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number "P-17764" inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to hotels, restaurants, and institutions nationwide.
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.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a healthcare provider.
