House of Smoke recalls 144,000 pounds of meat

House of Smoke Inc. in Fort Lupton is recalling about 144,000 pounds of meat and poultry products because of an undeclared allergen and misbranding, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said this week.

The products were processed with a releasing agent containing soy lecithin, a known allergen that is not declared on the label. The recall includes bratwurst, fully cooked sausages and raw meat.

The recall spans bratwurst and other kinds of sausages as well as raw duck and turkey produced Jan. 24.

The recall products bear the number “EST 6273″ or “P-6273″ inside the USDA “Mark of Inspection.” The products were sold nationwide to distributors, restaurants, and over the Internet.

The problem was discovered during a Food Safety Assessment. House of Smoke mistakenly believed the releasing agent was a processing aid that did not need to be declared on the label, the food safety agency said.

The food safety agency and the company have received no reports of problems related to the products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a health care provider.

A House of Smoke representative did not immediately return a phone message requesting comment.
