Holten Meat Inc. of Sauget, IL has issued a recall for approximately 501,509 pounds of Extra Value Meats Quarter Pound Beef Patties products due to misbranding, according to USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

1.5-lb. cartons containing 6 pieces of “EXTRA VALUE MEATS QUARTER POUND BEEF PATTIES.”
1.5-lb resealable bags containing 6 pieces of “QUICK SERVE EXTRA VALUE MEATS BEEF PATTIES.”
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 2591” inside the USDA mark of inspection and the Universal Product Code (UPC) Item #79821-00043. These items were shipped to retailers and distributors nationwide and the Bahamas.
The problem was discovered when a company employee discovered that the ingredient monosodium glutamate (MSG) was used in product preparation but not listed on package labeling.
FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
