3-D Meats LLC in Dalton, Ohio, has reportedly recalled around 47 pounds of RTE (ready-to-eat) beef stick products because of being misbranded and containing of undeclared allergens. As reported by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s FSIS (Food Safety and Inspection Service) these RTE beef snacks are likely to contain milk – a allergen – which was not printed on the product label.

The product packaging bears an established number “Est. M45377” inside the USDA mark of inspection and were shipped to the retail outlets in Ohio.
The recall came in the wake of FSIS’s concern over some products that were produced and packaged on 19th of October been already purchased by number of consumers. The agency has urged these consumers to not to consume these snacks and either return them to the place of purchase or throw it away.
The problem was detected by the agency on 7th of December, when the FSIS received concerns over the label. However, there have been no confirmed reports about the unhealthy or adverse reactions on consuming these products yet, cite sources familiar with the matter.
Anyone concerned over any illness or injury should immediately contact a healthcare provider, urged the regulatory agency.
