MIBO Fresh Foods LLC, a Fort Worth, Texas establishment, is recalling approximately 1,460 pounds of salad with meat products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The product contains anchovies, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.

- 9.65 oz. clear plastic packages containing “H-E-B MEAL SIMPLE CHEF SALAD with Homestyle Ranch Dressing” and “Best By” dates of 05-18-19 and 05-20-19 represented on the label.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. P-27399” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail stores in Texas. ¬
The problem was discovered by a retail store when the mislabeled products were being unboxed to be placed on the retail store shelves.
