Sausages Recalled for Improper Labeling

Sausages Recalled for Improper Labeling

Posted By Golomb & Honik, P.C. || 10-Oct-2014

Individuals with food allergies rely on accurate labeling to ensure that the food they eat is suitable for their diets. But when corporations fail to properly label products, the results can be disastrous. If you have suffered needlessly because a food company decided to prioritize profits over safety, Golomb & Honik, P.C. can help you recover compensation for your damages.

According to Reuters, Interbay Food Co LLC is recalling nearly 5,000 pounds of pork sausages because they contain milk, but the labels did not include this information. The United States Department of Agriculture said that the Washington-based company is recalling one-pound refrigerated packages and five-pound logs of its British Pantry Ltd, British Style Bangers.

Food manufacturers have a legal responsibility to correctly label foods. The Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA) of 2006 requires that foods containing major allergens declare these ingredients. Major allergens include:

  • Milk
  • Eggs
  • Fish
  • Crustaceans
  • Peanuts
  • Tree nuts
  • Wheat
  • Soy

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) oversees food labeling and is responsible for ensuring the safety of the food we eat. About five percent of the American population suffers from a food allergy. If a company's negligence has caused you harm, Golomb & Honik, P.C. will fight aggressively to protect your rights and hold the negligent food manufacturer accountable.
