Truitt Brothers’ Cheeseburger Mac products recalled due to misbranding

Posted under Product Liability

The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced Sunday, January 19 that Truitt Brothers Inc. has issued a recall of about 1.77 million pounds of cheeseburger mac products after the company found that the labels on some products failed to declare the presence of certain allergens.

According to the news release published by the USDA, the affected 3.3 lb. cases of Kraft Velveeta Cheesy Skillets SINGLES-ULTIMATE CHEESEBURGER MAC were manufactured between May 6, 2013 and January 16, 2013 with Used By/Sell By dates of March 2, 2014 to October 23, 2014. The identifying UPC code is 2100004329, with case numbers 00210000432900, 00210000432910, 00210000432925, 00210000464000 and 00210000465100. The FSIS said these products contain the allergens dried soy sauce and hydrolyzed soy protein, but were not indicated in the label.
