The United States Department of Agriculture is recalling 200,000 pounds of certain Mr. Wok Foods products that may have been mislabeled.
The United States Department of Agriculture announced a recall for 200,000 pounds of Mr. Wok Foods branded meat and poultry earlier this week. Why? The agency is concerned that some of the products are mislabeled and contain undeclared allergies. For people with allergies, this could be a potentially life-threatening issue. According to the notice, the affected products may contain milk, wheat, soy, peanuts, and oysters. Additionally, Mr. Wok, a company based in Las Vegas, Nevada, “neglected to mention that there may be traces of MSG, sesame products and sulfites in the products.”
The problem was found during a routine inspection by the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service. A full list of the recalled items can be found here. Some of the affected products include the following frozen items:
- Tempura Fried Chicken Nuggets
