ConAgra Foods is recalling more than 84,000 pounds of two beef products due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen.

The products were formulated with Worcestershire sauce and may contain fish (anchovies), a known allergen that is not on the product label, said the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA-FSIS).

Recalled products
  • 14-oz. box of “Marie Callender’s Salisbury Steak with Roasted Potatoes and Home-Style Gravy served with Cheesy Broccoli & Cauliflower” with package code of 5014610500 and packaging date of April 14, 2016.
  • 76-oz. package of “Molly’s Kitchen Macaroni & Beef with Tomato Sauce” with package code of 5014610400 and packaging date of April 13, 2016

Frozen beef items were produced between April 13 and 14, 2016.

ConAgra Foods found an error associated with a shipment of Worcestershire sauce.

The Worcestershire sauce was miscoded as Rochester sauce and the firm then used the miscoded sauce in the recalled products.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions.

The Marie Callender’s product was shipped to retail distribution centers nationwide and the Molly’s Kitchen item was sent to an institutional customer nationwide.
