WASHINGTON, Aug. 5, 2017 – Hahn Brothers, Inc., a Westminster, Md. establishment, is recalling approximately 115,773 pounds of ready-to-eat (RTE) ham products due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The products contain malted barley, a known allergen, which is not declared on the final product label.

The ready-to-eat ham products were produced from Dec. 17, 2015 to July 27, 2017. The products have a 70-day sell-by date. The following product is subject to recall:

  • 1.75-lb. of vacuum-packed mini ham packages containing “Lou's Garrett Valley Natural, All Natural black forest seasoned uncured ham nugget, FULLY COOKED WOOD SMOKED” with a case code 74045.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 2000” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to a distributor in New Jersey and further distributed to retail locations.

The problem was discovered when the FSIS Office of Public Health Science (OPHS) received a consumer complaint on July 11, 2017 with regard to a mislabeling of Lou’s Garret Valley Black Forest Seasoned Uncured Ham Nugget produced by Hahn Brothers Incorporated. The complainant noted that malted barley is listed as an ingredient on the company’s website, but is not listed as an ingredient on the product label.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

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.

Media and consumers with questions about the recall can contact Barry Blevins, Vice President of Operations, at (443) 375-7762.

Consumers with food safety questions can "Ask Karen," the FSIS virtual representative available 24 hours a day at AskKaren.gov or via smartphone at m.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 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday. Recorded food safety messages are available 24 hours a day. The online Electronic Consumer Complaint Monitoring System can be accessed 24 hours a day at: https://www.fsis.usda.gov/reportproblem.
