Isabella Foods is located in an El Paso, Texas establishment. They are currently recalling approximately 685 pounds of tamale products. The reason for the recall is because of misbranding and undeclared allergens. The product currently contains wheat or soy. The problem is that these known allergens are not mentioned on the product label.

The following products are going to be recalled: 36-oz. packages containing 12 “Isabella Foods of El Paso Green Chicken Tamales” and bearing the establishment number “P-13389” inside the USDA mark of inspection and 36-oz. packages containing 12 “Isabella Foods of El Paso Red Pork Tamales” and bearing the establishment number “EST. 1960” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

These specific products were produced through Jan. 18, 2013.  They were distributed and sold at local markets and retail stores in the El Paso, Texas area.  The problem was found by the FSIS in-plant personnel. They found the problem during a label review. The FSIS inspector found soy in the textured vegetable protein ingredient. During the same review, the FSIS inspector found that wheat was a subcomponent of the masa flour ingredient. This ingredient was found in the red pork tamale product but not declared on the label. FSIS and the company have received no reports of physical harm due to consumption of these products. The FSIS has advised who is 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 to ensure that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. Consumers and members of the media with questions about the recall should contact the company’s Owner, Nielson Guerra, at (915) 590-1899.
