Food Recalls — December 20, 2019

Montpak International Inc.

Montpak International Inc. has recalled almost 3,000 pounds of lamb and veal products sent from Canada to distributors in New York, New Jersey and Virginia. The recall has been issued because the products were not re-inspected before being imported.

The recall notice explains:

“FSIS is concerned that some product may be in distributors’ refrigerators or freezers. Distributors are urged not to release these products to retailers. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.”

The products involved in the recall include veal bones, veal marrow bones, veal leg cutlets and whole lamb carcasses wrapped in cheesecloth.

White Castle

The frozen food division of White Castle has announced a recall of five different packages of their frozen burgers due to the chance that they could contain Listeria monocytogenes.

The recall includes the following products:

  • 6-pack cheeseburgers, frozen
  • 6-pack hamburgers, frozen
  • 6-pack jalapeno cheeseburgers, frozen
  • 16-pack hamburgers
  • 16-pack cheeseburgers

Only products with best-by dates between August 4 and August 17, 2020, are part of the recall. Those with dates before and after this period are not included.

In a statement, the VP of White Castle, Jamie Richardson, said:

“Our number one focus is the safety of our customers and our team members, and as a family-owned business, we want to hold ourselves to the absolute highest standards of accountability in all aspects of our business – and especially food safety.”

If you’ve purchased any of the recalled products, the company is asking that you throw them out or return them to the store they were purchased for a refund or exchange.

J. M. Smucker

The J. M. Smucker Company is voluntarily recalling four lots of its Special Kitty wet canned food because they are concerned that the ingredients don’t meet quality and safety standards. The products included in the recall include Special Kitty Surf & Turf Variety Pack of Pate Cat Food in 5.5-oz metal cans and Special Kitty Mixed Grill Dinner Pate 5.5-oz metal cans.

Although the company has not said exactly what’s wrong with the ingredients, they did say that ingesting them could cause nausea, excessive salivation, vomiting, diarrhea or, in extreme situations, seizures, difficulty walking and death.

If you have any questions, you can call 888-569-6767.
