Food Recall: Chili No Beans

In a nutshell: Class III recall (low priority) because of mistakes on nutritional label. Who knew?

From FDA press release

The Wornick Company, a Cincinnati, Ohio, establishment is recalling approximately 153,698 pounds of a “Chili no beans” product because the product was mislabeled with the incorrect nutrition facts information panel.

The following product is subject to recall:

Brushy Creek Brand:
11.25-ounce pouches of “Brushy Creek Chili no beans.” Each case contains 24 pouches and bears the establishment number “EST. 19076” and “Best By Dates” of “7/22/10; 08/26/10; 10/01/10 and 10/22/10” printed on the reverse side of the pouch; the opposite side bears the USDA mark of inspection.

The chili product was produced and packaged on various dates in January 2009 through April 2009 and was distributed to correctional institutions nationwide. The distribution of the chili product was limited only to correctional institutions.

The problem was discovered by a routine quality assurance check by the establishment.

Questions regarding the recall should be directed to the company’s Senior Vice President of Business Development, John Kowalchik, at (513) 552-7406.
