A McKinny-based food company is recalling more than 8,600 pounds of frozen meals because of a labeling error that could be medically hazardous to some people, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Wednesday.

Blount Fine Foods said about 8,685 pounds of their “Beef Chile Colorado” frozen meals actually contained cheese enchiladas with milk as an ingredient. The items were shipped to distribution centers in Texas and Pennsylvania.

Milk, a known allergen, wasn’t listed on the product label, according to the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The frozen products were produced on Nov. 23, 2016. The 10-ounce retail cans display a label saying, “Saffron Road Beef Chile Colorado with Mesquite Black Beans & Garlic Rice” and have a “best by” date of May 23, 2018, officials said.

The problem was discovered after the company received a complaint from a consumer.

The USDA said any of the products should be thrown away or returned to the store where they were purchased.

For information, contact the USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at 1-888-674-6854.
