No Whey!! 42,000 Pounds Of Tamales Recalled
42,000 pounds of Diana's Mexican Food Products chicken tamales are being recalling because the ingredient whey, a known allergen, is not listed on the label.
The label omission was discovered during a routine inspection of the South Bay company's plant by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service, reports KTLA.
"There are no reports of anyone becoming sick from the tamales and if a person isn't allergic to whey, the tamales are perfectly safe to eat," says KTLA. The tamales in question were produced from February 2010 through Dec. 2, 2010, and distributed in California to a variety of restaurants.
In related news, there are two Tamale Festivals today.
