A Minnetonka company is recalling about 11 tons of frozen meat products that were produced without federal inspection, the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced last week. Taher Inc., a contract food service management company servicing schools, senior living facilities, and corporate dining facilities, is recalling 22,096 pounds of meat products produced and packaged from Feb. 25 to Sept. 22, according to the USDA announcement. The products recalled are 16-pound boxes containing four bags of “Fresh Seasons Tater Tot Hot Dish,” and 16-pound boxes containing four bags of “Fresh Seasons Sloppy Joe.” The products were shipped to institutions and foodservice locations in Minnesota.
While there have been no confirmed reports of illnesses due to consumption of the products, the Food Safety and Inspection Service said there were concerns some of the products may still be in foodservice freezers. “Institutions and foodservice locations who have purchased these products are urged not to serve them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase,” according to the USDA news release.
