Michigan Firm Has Recalled Turkey Products

Athens, MI (SafetyAlerts) - United States Department of Agriculture, Food Safety and Inspection Service, (FSIS) said that House of Raeford Farms Inc. has recalled an undetermined amount of ready-to-eat turkey with gravy that contains undeclared ingredients including a known allergen (wheat).


Wheat is a known allergen. Persons who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to wheat run the risk of possible allergic reactions if they consume this product.

The products being recalled are 24-lb. cases containing 4-6 lb. trays of "HOUSE OF RAEFORD, From Marvin's House, White Turkey with Gravy." The cases bear the product code "963" or "96300." Each case and individual tray bears the establishment number "P-1234" on the label, inside the USDA seal of inspection.

The product was produced between November 1999 and May 16, 2002 and distributed to hotels, restaurants and institutions in Alabama, District of Columbia, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.

After May 16, the ingredient label was corrected. Products bearing the new label, which can be identified by the inclusion of wheat flour, are not subject to recall.

"We want consumers to be aware of the recall," said William J. Hudnall, acting FSIS administrator. "Diners with sensitivities to wheat may wish to ask if their meals contain the recalled product."

The problem was discovered by an FSIS inspector
