1.7 Million Pounds Bob Evans Products Recalled For Undeclared MSG

Recently, BEF Foods Inc. announced a recall of more than 1.7 million pounds of Bob Evans Maple Patties and Maple Links due to the fact that the product labels did not list the ingredient MSG, or monosodium glutamate. The problem was discovered during a label audit. As leaders in the industrial traceability systems industry, Markem-Imaje is aware that in recent years, it seems that more and more people have become allergic to ingredients in packaged foods, which is why it is essential that all ingredients are clearly listed on labels. Although MSG is not classified as an allergen by the USDA, some individuals are sensitive to it - and those who are can experience a severe reaction. So far there have been no reports of adverse reactions to the products. According to the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service, the products which were recalled were produced between April 4 and October 19 of this year. The products included in the recall are: Bob Evans Maple Links, 12 oz. packages, UPC 075900002300, 075900000085, and 075900002324. Bob Evans Maple Patties, 12 oz. packages, UPC 0759000025028, 075900000795 and 075900002522. Consumers will find establishment numbers on the side of the packages, which are M-952 or M-6785. Whether because of undeclared allergens, potential contamination or any issue which can put consumers' health and safety at risk, it is essential that manufacturers are able to remove their goods from the supply chain quickly and efficiently in the event of a recall. Markem-Imaje supplies reliable industrial traceability solutions to manufacturers in many countries around the world.
