The U.S. Food Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service has announced a nationwide recall of liver pate on Feb. 2. Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Meats recalled Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Liver Pate due to misbranding of the product and not listing a known allergen to the list of ingredients label.
The Wittenberg, Wis. - based company recalled 4,454 pounds of the affected liver pate because the product contained the milk protein sodium caseinate, a known allergen. The misbranding in addition to the ingredient not declared on the list of ingredient label placed this recall as a high public health risk to consumers.
The affected pate were distributed in 10-ounce vacuum packed packages with use by dates of “2/13/13C,” “2/19/13C,” “2/20/13C” or “3/16/13C.”
No illnesses have been reported in this nationwide recall to date.
Consumers may contact Tammy Beran, Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Meats Quality Assurance Director at 715-253-4058 with any further questions pertaining to this recall.
