FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – A Minnesota wholesaler is recalling more than a ton of beef sirloin products because the labels fail to indicate that one ingredient is milk, a possible allergen.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says J&B Group Inc. of St. Michael is recalling about 2,645 pounds of products. The products were made between January and September of last year, and were distributed for institutional use in Montana, North Dakota and Texas.

The USDA says there have been no reports of illness due to consumption of the products.

The products are 10.5-pound cases of “Ellison Meat Company Beef Sirloin Top Butt Steak, Cap Off, No Roll, Marinated,” and 10-pound cases of “Ellison Meat Company Beef Sirloin Top Butt Steak Cap Off.

The products sport the establishment number “EST. 15806” inside the USDA inspection mark. The USDA’s news release on the recall notes the problem was found during “a routine label review,” and blamed the mistake on human error.

Consumers can find more information on the USDA website.
