WASHINGTON, Sept. 6, 2013 – Galant Food Company, a San Leandro, Calif. establishment is recalling approximately 1,650 pounds of fresh or frozen calzone products because of misbranding and an undeclared allergen. The products are formulated with an egg wash glaze that contains egg, a known allergen, which is not declared on the label.

The products subject to recall include:

10-ounce packages, in 7.5 pound cases, of “ENZO’S Italian Combo Calzone” bearing the establishment number “EST. 9014” inside the USDA mark of inspection on the label. Identifying case codes are: 7163, 7173, 7183, 7223, 7253, 8143, 8303 and 9043.
10-ounce packages, in 7.5 pound cases, of “ENZO’S Chicken Fajita Calzone” bearing the establishment number “P-9014” inside the USDA mark of inspection on the label. Identifying case codes are: 7163, 7173, 7183, 7223, 8133 and 9043.

The products were produced between July 16 and Sept. 4, 2013 and shipped to distributors, retail locations and possibly restaurants in the San Francisco Bay area.

The problem was discovered during a food safety assessment at the establishment. FSIS personnel are responsible for verifying that establishments are actively labeling the eight most common food allergens. The problem occurred because the wrong computer was connected to the label printer during the firm’s recent relocation.

FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at: Recalls.

Consumers and media with questions about the recall should contact Richard Fairchild, the company’s recall coordinator, at 415-552-5475.
