Pigs in the Blanket Recalled

24 December 2012

US - Stehouwer's Frozen Foods is recalling approximately 6,039 pounds of Pigs in the Blanket products because of misbranding and an undeclared allergen, milk, which is not declared on the label.

The products produced by the Grand Rapids, Michigan processor include 13.5-lb. cases of Stehouwer's Pigs in the Blanket and 5-lb. bulk packages of Stehouwer's Pigs in the Blanket.

Each case and package bears the establishment number "EST. 6814" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

They were distributed for institutional use and to retail stores in Michigan.

The problem was discovered by FSIS inspection personnel during a routine label review.

The FSIS inspector saw that nonfat milk was listed as an ingredient in the mix used to make the dough for this product, but it was not listed on the final product label.

The ingredient supplier had changed its spice mix components in the time since Stehouwer's Frozen Foods had created labels for the Pigs in the Blanket products.
