Hy-Vee Initiates Recall Over Labeling Concerns

Frozen food company Hy-Vee has announced a recall of approximately 6,233 pounds of ready-to-eat beef and chicken products over misbranding issues and concern for undeclared allergens.  Apparently, these products contain milk, which is a known allergen that has not been declared on the product label.  

Each of the products would have been produced on September 7 or 8, of this year; and each product is sold in a 20-oz package.  Also, they will all bear “EST 51558” or “P-51558” on their USDA mark of inspection. Finally, they were distributed to local retailers in Kansas, Wisconsin, South Dakota, Nebraska, Illinois, Minnesota, Iowa, and Missouri. The recall includes:
