The issue was discovered on March 12 by FSIS personnel during a food safety assessment at the company. At this time, there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions to the products.
The recalled items were shipped to retail locations in Florida and Georgia. FSIS warned consumers to check their freezers and either throw out the recalled products or return them to the place of purchase.
