WASHINGTON (WATE) - Truitt Brothers Inc. out of East Bernstadt, Ky. is recalling approximately 1.77 million pounds of shelf-stable pasta and ground beef products because of misbranding and an undeclared allergen according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).


The products are formulated with hydrolyzed soy protein and dried soy sauce, which are known allergens, and are not declared on some labels.

The products subject to recall include:                                                    

  • Kraft Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Singles - Ultimate Cheeseburger Mac - 3.3lb cases containing six, 9-ounce microwaveable containers 
  • Use By/Sell By date code of 02 MARCH 2014 - 23 OCT 2014. 
  • Identifying case codes are: 00210000432900, 00210000432910, 00210000432925, 00210000464000 and 00210000465100.        
  • The products were produced between May 6, 2013 and Jan. 16, 2014 and shipped to Kraft Foods distribution centers and retail locations nationwide.  
No other Velveeta or Kraft products are impacted by this recall.

The problem was discovered during a recent routine quality check conducted by the company, which then contacted FSIS. The company believes the problem occurred when a label supplier inadvertently mixed labels with incorrect ingredient lines with labels containing correct ingredient information.

FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.

Anyone concerned about a reaction is urged to contact a healthcare provider.

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. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at:  www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.

Consumers with questions about the recall should contact the Kraft Foods Consumer Relations Center at 1-800-396-5512.
