Soy Protein, an Undeclared Allergen, Prompts Recall of Bratwurst
EMSL Analytical now offers food allergen testing services in Houston, TX and Cinnaminson, NJ.
3,660 pounds of bratwurst are being recalled, because the product contains an allergen that was not listed on the label: soy protein.
Zenner’s Quality Meat Products of Portland, OR is voluntarily recalling the huge amount of bratwurst. The recall is of 2.25-lb. packages marked as “Zenner’s Smoked Brotwurst” with a sell-by-date through 7/17/12 and the establishment number 6308, according to Food Safety News.
The bratwurst, which made before and on May 16, 2012, was distributed to four states: California, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington.
The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) states that no complaints have been filed against the company as a result of the undeclared allergen.
The undeclared allergen was discovered during a routine label review performed by FSIS.
“EMSL Analytical is proud to announce that we now offer food allergen testing in our Houston laboratory, in addition to our Cinnaminson, NJ location,” states Jason Dobranic, Ph.D., Vice President of Microbiology and Life Sciences. “EMSL analyzes a wide array of food allergens, including but not limited to soy protein, peanuts, sesame, almond, total milk, egg, crustacean, and gliadin (gluten).”
