Colorado company recalls 144,000 pounds of meat over soy content
FORT LUPTON, Colo. — Fort Lupton-based meat producer House of Smoke issued a recall Monday of 144,000 pounds of food over concerns that it could contain undisclosed soy, the United States Department of Agriculture reported.
The recall includes numerous sausage, raw meat and jerky-type products. The products were processed with a releasing agent containing soy lecithin, which is known to cause allergic reactions in some people, the USDA said.
The soy lecithin is not listed on the products’ ingredient labels. The USDA classifies the problem as Class II, meaning there is a remote but nonzero probability of adverse health consequences from the use of the product.
House of Smoke sells meats, including wild game, nationwide to distributors, restaurants and internet customers.
