All recalled products bear establishment number “EST. 6668” inside the USDA mark of inspection and were distributed throughout North and South Carolina.

There have been no confirmed reports of illness, injury or adverse reactions as a result of consumption of the products. Anybody concerned about illness should contact their doctor.

Anybody with a recalled product is urged to throw it away or return it to the store.
