Sara Lee North American Retail, a St. Joseph, Mo., establishment, is recalling approximately 1,728 pounds of cheese frank products because they were inadvertently packaged with beef frank labels and therefore contained undeclared allergens, milk and cheese.

Milk, a known potential allergen, is not declared on the label.


The following product is subject to recall:

* 1-pound packages of "Ball Park BRAND BEEF FRANKS." Each package bears the use by date of "May 07 09 P8740A" as well as a UPC code of "5450010002."

The cheese frank products were produced on Feb. 12, 2009, and were shipped to retail establishments nationwide intended for use by consumers.

The problem was discovered by the company after receiving consumer inquiries. FSIS has received no reports of illness due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a physician.
