Frozen Meatballs Recalled In 10 States Over Allergen Risk

According to the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, frozen meatballs sold in 10 states are being recalled “due to misbranding and undeclared allergens.”

Home Market Foods Inc, a Norwood Massachusetts based company, is recalling approximately 53,217 pounds of frozen ready-to-eat beef and pork meatball products.

The affected products were sold in retail locations in Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, and Rhode Island.

The reason for the recall is the products contain milk and wheat, which are known allergens, but they are not declared on the product label

To identify the bags, check for a production date of April 2, labeled as "Homestyle Meatballs” or "Cranberry Stuffed Meatballs." The meatballs have a July 2, 2020, best if used by date and say "EST. 2727" inside the USDA mark of inspection.
