US-based Uno Foods is recalling nearly 1,881lb worth of ham and cheese calzones as a result of product misbranding.

According to the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), the product packaging was labelled as a ham and cheese calzone but actually contained a buffalo chicken calzone.

The issue was brought to the company’s attention on 22 May after it received a complaint about the product from a customer.

"FSIS has classified the recall as Class III, which indicates that consumption of the product is not expected to cause any adverse health consequences."

Uno Foods subsequently notified the FSIS of the mistake.

The buffalo chicken calzones were produced on 1 May before being distributed to retail stores in Chicago and Texas via distribution facilities.

Products that are subject to recall under the initiative bear the establishment number ‘EST. 17426’ inside the USDA mark of inspection.

FSIS is also concerned that some products may already be in consumers’ home refrigerators and freezers.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions or illness due to consumption of these products to date.

FSIS has urged consumers not to eat the products, instead advising that they be disposed of or returned to their place of purchase.

Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

FSIS has classified the recall as Class III, which indicates that consumption of the product is not expected to cause any adverse health consequences.

Uno Foods provides consumer food products that are currently sold in more than 6,000 grocery stores, convenience stores and other outlets across the US.
