WASHINGTON, April 29, 2010 - The Murphy House, a Louisburg, N.C., establishment, is recalling 414 lbs. of Brunswick stew products because they contain cracker meal with undeclared allergens, wheat and milk, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. Wheat and milk are known allergens, which are not declared on the label.

The following products are subject to recall:
  • 5 lb. packages of “MURPHY HOUSE BARBECUE OUR OLD FASHIONED BRUNSWICK STEW” produced on April 2, 2010.
  • 24-ounce cups of “MURPHY HOUSE OUR OLD FASHIONED BRUNSWICK STEW” produced on April 2, 2010.

Each package bears the establishment number “EST. 2135” inside the USDA mark of inspection. Cases and individual packages bear the sell-by date of 05/17/10.

The beef stew products were distributed at the wholesale and retail level in North Carolina.

The problem was discovered during a Food Safety Assessment of operations at the establishment by FSIS personnel. FSIS has received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an allergic reaction should contact a physician.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers (including restaurants) of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.

Consumer and media inquiries regarding the recall should be directed to Josh Whitely, Vice President, at (919) 496-6054.

Consumers with food safety questions can "Ask Karen," the FSIS virtual representative available 24 hours a day at AskKaren.gov. The toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) is available in English and Spanish and can be reached from l0 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday. Recorded food safety messages are available 24 hours a day.
