Misbranding and undeclared allergens lead to the recall of meat and poultry products

An undetermined amount of various frozen meat and poultry ravioli and blintzes products has been recalled by Red Square Foods due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, informs USDA's FSIS.
The products contain eggs, milk, and/or wheat, all known allergens, which are not declared on the product label. The frozen not-ready-to-eat meat and poultry products were produced and packaged from October 6, 2016, through October 24, 2018. The problem was discovered by FSIS inspectors during routine label verification activities. These items were shipped to retail locations in Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania but there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products so far.
The inspectors have classified the case as Class I alert, with a high risk for the health of the consumer. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
