Thousands of pounds of frozen empanadas recalled, produced without federal inspection
WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- Thousands of pounds of frozen empanadas are being recalled because they were produced without federal inspection.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture says it launched an investigation into SAS Foods Enterprises after getting an anonymous tip.
The company's beef and chicken empanadas had a false mark of inspection on them.
The products were sold in Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin.
The frozen, fully cooked beef and chicken empanada items were produced on various dates from Jan. 1, 2020 through Sept. 11, 2021. The following products are subject to recall:
- 1-lb. zip-lock bags or clear, plastic containers with “SAS Food EMPANADAS DE POLLO CHICKEN PATTIES.”
- 1-lb. zip-lock bags or clear, plastic containers with “SAS Food EMPANADAS DE CARNE BEEF PATTIES.”
Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
The USDA says there were no reports of any illnesses.
