WASHINGTON (WDTN) –  ConAgra Foods Packaged Foods, LLC is recalling 84,340 pounds of two beef products due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service today.

The products were inadvertently formulated with Worcestershire sauce and may contain fish (anchovies), a known allergen that is not declared on the product label.

The frozen beef items were produced between April 13 and April 14, 2016. The following products are subject to recall: [View Labels]

  • 14-oz. box of “Marie Callender’s Salisbury Steak with Roasted Potatoes and Home-Style Gravy served with Cheesy Broccoli & Cauliflower” with package code of 5014610500 and packaging date of April 14, 2016.
  • 76-oz. package of “Molly’s Kitchen Macaroni & Beef with Tomato Sauce” with package code of 5014610400 and packaging date of April 13, 2016.

The Marie Callender’s item was shipped to retail distribution centers nationwide and the Molly’s Kitchen item was shipped to an institutional customer nationwide.
