Illinois Firm Recalls Chili For Mislabeling

(SafetyAlerts) - The Milnot Company, a Litchfield, Ill. firm, is voluntarily recalling approximately 3,000 pounds of chili because of mislabeling, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.

The chili product contains an unapproved ingredient, tara gum.

The products being recalled are 10.5 oz. cans of "GREAT FOR CHILI DOGS!, NO BEAN, CHILLI MAN CHILI."

The bottom of each can bears a date code that ends with "1422 D3205."

The label bears the establishment number "EST. 1422" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The chili was produced on July 24, 2003, and distributed to grocery stores in the Chicago metropolitan area.

Consumers and media with questions about the recall may contact Lisa Lewis, company manager of consumer services, at (314) 655-2155.
