144,000 pounds of frozen tamales made and sold in California by Homestead Pasta Company have been recalled after the dairy allergen whey was found in the tamales but was not listed on the packages.

The products recalled include the Garibaldi Beef Tamale, the Garibaldi Turkey Tamale, The Golden West Traditional Beef Tamale with Sauce in Husk, the Golden West Traditional Turkey Tamale with Sauce in Husk and the Casper Beef and Casper Chicken Tamales.

There have been no reports of adverse reactions to eating the recalled tamales, but the USDA is warning consumers to contact their healthcare providers if they have recently eaten the tamales and are concerned about a reaction or are allergic to dairy.
