ABBYLAND FOODS, INC. RECALLS BEEF STICK PRODUCT

DUE TO MISBRANDING AND UNDECLARED ALLERGENS

 
WASHINGTON, January 8, 2022 – Abbyland Foods, Inc., an Abbotsford, Wisc. establishment, is recalling approximately 14,976 pounds of beef sticks due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The smoked beef sticks were produced between Nov. 15 and Nov. 17, 2021. The following products are subject to recall:

 

  • 2-lb. clear plastic packages containing “IOWA SMOKEHOUSE ORIGINAL SMOKED BEEF STICKS” and sell by dates of 11/15/2022 or 11/17/2022 represented on the label.
 

The products subject to recall bear establishment number 1633B on the package below the sell by date. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.

                                 

The problem was discovered after the firm received consumer complaints of cheese in the product and reported the event to FSIS.
