Ohio-based BEF Foods Inc. issued a recall of approximately 527 pounds of beef pasta products that were produced without the benefit of federal inspection and outside of inspection hours, according to a May 21 notice from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service, or FSIS.
The ready-to-eat Bob Evans Beef Stroganoff Pasta, produced on May 3, were distributed to retail outlets in Alabama, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio, including Walmart Inc. stores in Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio.
The items being recalled were packed in 18-ounce sealed plastic trays, bearing establishment number M-46062, a use-by date of July 2 and a timestamp ranging between the hours of 15:00 and 18:37 on the tray seal, according to the notice.
The recall was launched after an FSIS personnel reviewed the records of production for the recalling firm.
The FSIS said there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to the consumption of the product. It urges consumers who have purchased the items to throw them away or return to the place of purchase.
BEF Foods is a unit of Bob Evans Farms Inc., which is owned by Missouri-based packaged goods company Post Holdings Inc.
