WASHINGTON – Erlanger, Kentucky-based Blue Grass Quality Meats recalled approximately 121,083 lbs. of pork bacon and ready-to-eat turkey products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens according to the US Dept. of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The products contain soy, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product labels.
The problem was discovered when the firm’s seasoning supplier notified them that the proprietary seasoning, which is not supposed to contain soy, actually contains soy lecithin.
