20,000+ pounds of Beef Tips Recalled

Posted on August 28, 2015 by


Swanson Meats, Minneapolis, Minnesota is recalling approximately 20,063 pounds of beef products due to misbranding. The products were formulated with soybean oil, MSG, and papain (a meat tenderizer), which were not declared on the product labels. Soy is a known allergen. MSG may cause allergy-type reactions to those who may have sensitivity to it.

The boneless beef tender tips were produced on various dates from Feb. 26, 2015 through Aug. 26, 2015. The following products are subject to recall:

20-lb cases of “Marinated Boneless Beef Tender Tip” bearing case code “SM04291” and establishment number “Est. 5697” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

These items were shipped to restaurants in Minneapolis and St. Paul. The problem was discovered by FSIS in-plant personnel during routine inspection activities.

FSIS and the company have received no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Robert Schuneman, Swanson Meats chief operating officer, at (612) 465-0379 or at bschuneman@swansonmeats.com.
