Additive Beefs Up Meat Recall

Associated Press

The maker of Ball Park franks is expanding its recall to 1 million pounds of meat, and Eckrich Foods Co. is recalling 2,000 pounds of bologna because of a milk protein that can cause reactions in allergic people.

Hygrade Food Products of Detroit first announced the recall on Wednesday of 91,500 packages of its “Ball Park Fat Free Franks, Smoke Flavoring Added,” containing the 545393 bar code and a Sept. 3 sell-by date.

On Friday, Hygrade said more 14-ounce packages with sell-by dates between July 16 and Oct. 1 could also contain the milk protein, which was inadvertently included in fat-free franks but not listed on the labels. These franks would have the same bar code.
