NJ Company Recalls Meat Over Undeclared Peanuts

The New Jersey product liability attorneys at Breslin and Breslin are reporting that a NJ company is recalling more than 16,000 pounds of beef and chicken due to misbranding and undeclared allergens.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Saturday that the product from Gourmet Kitchen, Inc., contains peanuts, which is not labeled on the product. The ready-to-cook beef and chicken appetizers impacted have dates listed from Oct. 15, 2014 to March 2, 2015.

According to the USDA, the products were shipped nationwide. The recalled items have the establishment number "EST.18450″ or EST.18450 P" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The problem was discovered when the company was notified by its spice supplier that a season salt in one of the mixes used may have been contaminated with peanut allergens from the paprika. Gourmet Kitchen, Inc., then contacted the USDA who issued the recall.
