IL packing Co. recalls 500 lbs. of bratwurst

SPRINGFIELD, IL (KFVS) -

North Clay Packing Company in Louisville, Illinois is recalling around 500 pounds of bratwurst due to misbranding and undeclared allergens. 

The Illinois Department of Agriculture's Meat and Poultry Inspection announced the recall on April 23 because the product contains milk, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.

The product subject to the recall was sold as white five pound boxes with plastic liners and labeled "Illini Brand Bratwurst."

The packaging bears the establishment number "476" inside the Illinois mark of inspection. The bratwurst was produced on dates from May 23, 2013 through September 3, 2014 and sold in Coles County.

IDOA discovered the potential health hazard during a routine inspection by meat and poultry inspectors. Neither the IDOA nor the company has received any reports of illness due to consumption of the recalled product. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Retail distribution lists will be posted on the IDOA website at http://www.agr.state.il.us/recalls-and-public-health-alerts.

Consumers who have questions about the recall can contact the plant's representative, Mike Frost, at (618) 665-3151.
