A Wittenberg meat plant is recalling over 4,000 pounds of liver pate products after they were misbranded.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service, Nueske's Applewood Smoked Meats is recalling 10-oz. vacuum packed packages of 'Nueske's Applewood Smoked Liver Pate' because the product contains the milk protein sodium caseinate, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.
Each package bears the establishment number 'Est. 8926' inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were produced on various dates between December 15 and January 22 and were distributed for retail sale nationwide.
Nueske's Applewood Smoked Meats discovered in a label review that a new shipment of labels incorrectly omitting the sodium caseinate ingredient had been in use since the December 15 production date. The company then informed FSIS.
According to Wisconsin Ag Connection, the company doesn't know of any reported illnesses as a result of the error.
Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Tammy Beran, Nueske's Applewood Smoked Meats Quality Assurance Director at (715) 253-4058.
