Kent Quality Foods Recalls Hot Dogs and Sausages for Undeclared Soy

Kent Quality Foods of Michigan is recalling about 308,430 pounds of ready-to-eat hot dog and sausage products because they are misbranded and do not indicate the products contain soy, one of the major food allergens, on the label. Anyone who is allergic to soy could have a serious reaction if they eat these products. No reactions or illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this issue.

These products were produced on various dates from September 9, 2017 through April 29, 2018. You can see the long list of 44 recalled products, along with lot codes and labels at the USDA web site. Recalled products include Eisenberg Smoked Sausage with Processed Cheddar Cheese and JalapeƱos, B&W Foods Franks, Pal’s Sudden Service Franks, Kent Quality Foods Beef Franks, Texas Chili Company Natural Casing Bratwurst, GFS Natural Casing Kielbasa, Eisenberg Spicy Smoked Sausage, Steak N’ Shake Sliced Beef Franks, J. Dawgs Beef Polish Sausage, and Galardi Group Polish Sausage, among others.

These products have the establishment number “EST. 5694” inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were shipped to distribution and restaurant locations nationwide.

The problem was found in May 12, 2018 by the facility during inventory. The label for the spic emixsture used in the product of one of their Beef Polish Sausage products contained hydrolyzed soy protein, but soy was not listed on the ingredient label. Potential cross-contamination could have occurred via shared equipment while other products were made.

If you bought any of these products and are allergic to soy, don’t eat them. Throw them away or take them back to the store where you purchased them for a full refund. The restaurants cook and prepare the product for customers, who may take them home as leftovers. FSIS thinks some of these products could be in consumer’s freezers.
