WASHINGTON, Jan. 18, 2017 – Burger’s Ozark Country Cured, a California, Mo. establishment, is recalling approximately 1,905 pounds of fully cooked turkey products due to misbranding, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
The fully cooked turkey items were produced on Nov. 22, 2016 and packaged on Nov. 23, 2016. The following products are subject to recall:
The problem was discovered on Jan. 16, 2017 when a customer observed the wrong label was applied to the product. The mislabeled turkey product contains sodium nitrite, which is not declared on the label. On Jan. 17, 2017, the establishment notified FSIS that the firm wanted to recall the mislabeled product.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
Consumers and media with questions about the recall can contact Austin Mouse, Director of Quality Assurance, at (573) 796-3134 ext. 344.
