Illinois Firm Recalls Mini Pretzel Dog Products Due To Lack Of Inspection

WASHINGTON–(ENEWSPF)–May 7, 2010 – Vienna Beef Ltd., a Chicago, Ill., establishment, is recalling approximately 49,600 pounds of fully cooked mini pretzel dog products, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. These products were previously recalled in FSIS Recall Notification Report # RC-015-2010. Today’s recall reflects a determination by FSIS that a change in status from a Class III to a Class II recall was warranted due to a lack of inspection. No new products are included in today’s action.

The products subject to recall include:

  • 16-ounce bags of “VIENNA Beef Mini Pretzel Dogs.” Each package bears a sell-by date ranging from February 2, 2010 to July 1, 2010.
  • 32-ounce bags of “VIENNA Beef Mini Pretzel Dogs.” Each package bears a sell-by date ranging from May 31, 2010 to October 24, 2010.

The products were produced between December 2, 2009, and April 30, 2010, and were distributed at the retail level in Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

The problem was discovered by FSIS as part of routine surveillance of products in commerce. FSIS is taking this action due to a lack of inspection. FSIS and the company have received no reports of illness or adverse reactions due to consumption of these products and FSIS has determined that the food safety risk associated with the product is remote. Anyone concerned about an illness or allergic reaction should contact a physician.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. If available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS Web site at http://www.fsis.usda.gov/FSIS_Recalls/ Open_Federal_Cases/index.asp.

Consumer and media with questions about the recall should contact Senior Vice President Jack Bodman at (773) 435-2317.

Consumers with food safety questions can “Ask Karen,” the FSIS virtual representative available 24 hours a day at AskKaren.gov. The toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) is available in English and Spanish and can be reached from l0 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday. Recorded food safety messages are available 24 hours a day.
