Aaron's Best recalls 35,860 pounds of frozen beef and chicken

Agriprocessors, an Iowa company that specializes in kosher meats, recalled 35,860 pounds of frozen beef and chicken products that were mislabeled. The label failed to list egg albumen, a known allergen, among its ingredients. The problem was discovered by the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service, which said it has received no reports of illness related to the products. The recalled meats were produced between Jan. 14 and July 3 and distributed to food-service establishments nationwide, the USDA said.

The recalled products include 20-pound boxes of Aaron's Best kosher meatballs and nugget-shaped chicken-breast patties, and 12- and one-pound boxes of Aaron's Best kishka.
