Texas Firm Recalls Chili Because Of Misbranding

WASHINGTON, Dec. 19, 2003 — Classic Foods, L.P., a Fort Worth, Texas, firm, is voluntarily recalling approximately 15,760 pounds of chili because the product label does not list wheat and corn flour, which are potential allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.

The products being recalled are cases of "SONIC, America’s Drive-In, CHILI, 06600." The cases subject to recall bear the packaging code 33443 or 33493. The establishment number "13516" is found inside the USDA mark of inspection on each case.

Each case contains six, five-pound pouches of chili and each pouch is stamped with the product code 06600 and the package code 33443 or 33493.

The chili was produced on December 10, 15 and 16 and was shipped to restaurant distributors in Mississippi.

FSIS has received no reports of allergic reactions associated with consumption of this product. Anyone concerned about an allergic reaction should contact a physician.

The problem was discovered by an FSIS inspector.

Media with questions about the recall should contact Webb Stickney, Classic Foods chief executive officer, at (817) 271-8501. Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Dawn Mudge, Classic Foods office manager, at (817) 271-8501.

FOOD ALLERGIES

USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline
1-888-MPHotline or visit www.fsis.usda.gov

Consumers who have a food allergy or severe food sensitivity should always read ingredient labels. In restaurants they should ask whether an allergy-causing ingredient is in the food.

A food allergy occurs when the immune system reacts to a certain food, usually within minutes after the food has been consumed.

Symptoms may include throat swelling, breathing trouble or a rash.

Strictly avoiding the allergy-causing food is the only absolute way to avoid a reaction.

Several foods account for 90% of allergic reactions. They include peanuts, tree nuts (walnuts, pecans, etc.), fish, shellfish, eggs, milk, soy, and wheat.

Persons who have a severe, life-threatening food allergy should always carry, and know how to administer, prescription epinephrine.
