Texas Firm Has Recalled Egg Roll Products
Pasadena, TX (SafetyAlerts)
- Minh Food Corporation has recalled approximately 390 pounds of frozen egg
roll products that contain undeclared allergens (shrimp).
Shrimp are known allergens. Persons who have an allergy or severe
sensitivity to shrimp run the risk of possible allergic reactions if they
consume this product.
The products subject to recall are 13.7-ounce trays of "MINH EGG ROLLS,
WHITE MEAT CHICKEN." Printed on each package is the production code,
"382133B." Each package also bears the establishment number, "P-5630,"
inside the USDA seal of inspection.
"We want consumers to be aware of the recall," said William J. Hudnall,
acting FSIS administrator. "People who are allergic or sensitive to shrimp
may wish to check their freezers if they have the recalled product and
return it to the point of purchase."
The products were produced on May 13, 2002 and distributed to retail stores
in Kansas, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio, Texas and Wisconsin.
The products were also distributed to company marketing and sales
representatives in Alabama, Florida, Michigan, Missouri and North Carolina.
The problem was discovered by the company.
Media and consumers with questions about the recall may contact
Howard Miller, Minh Foods vice president of public affairs and
communication, at (507) 537-8700.
