US: Sara Lee’s Ball Park in voluntary recall
Sara Lee hot dog brand Ball Park has voluntarily recalled a partial production run of its Beef Franks due to them possibly containing cheese, an undeclared milk allergen.
The recall of Ball Park Beef Franks with the UPC CODE 5450010002 and a use-by date of May 07 09, may also contain undeclared poultry and pork.
The recall affects 1,728 pounds of product and is due to an error in packaging in which Ball Park Cheese Franks were packaged in Ball Park Beef Frank packaging.
No other Ball Park branded products are understood to be affected by the recall and the company said it has not received any reports of illnesses to date.
Ball Park said the recall is being conducted in conjunction with the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) and is urging consumers to return affected products to the store where it was purchased for a refund.
Ball Park Franks is a Sara Lee hot dog brand available in a number of varieties including: Original Meat Franks, Original Beef Franks, Bun Size Meat Franks, Bun Size Beef Franks and Turkey Franks.
