Walmart is pulling this frozen item from its shelves nationwide — Eat This
Less than a month after Walmart removed Great Value’s Chopped Walnuts and Mighty Sesame Co.’s organic tahini from stores, the retailer is taking another item off its shelves.
On September 17, the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the US Department of Agriculture announced that the Texas-based Valley International Cold Storage acquisition was recalling 22,061 pounds of frozen beef products, due to misbranding and the presence of undeclared milk, a Common allergen.

The recall applied to a 9.25-ounce box of Healthy Choice frozen food that was labeled as “Korean-Style Beef” but contained a chicken sausage and pepper product, which contains milk as an ingredient. This can pose a risk to consumers with milk allergies or sensitivities.
Affected items, which were produced on July 22, 2022, display a lot code of “5246220320”, the date 4/18/2023 “Best If Used”, and an installation number “34622” on the end flap .Carton.Products shipped to locations nationwide, including Walmart stores in 27 states.For a full list of Walmart locations that carry frozen food, look here.
Although there are currently no reports of adverse reactions caused by the product, the FSIS advises anyone who is concerned about an illness or injury to contact their healthcare provider. Additionally, the agency encourages anyone who still has items in their freezer to discard them or return them to their place of purchase.

Unfortunately, this isn’t the only frozen food product to be removed from stores recently. About three weeks ago, the FSIS announced that Connoisseur Kitchen was recalling approximately 880 pounds of frozen chicken products due to potential listeria contamination. Products included two-pound packages of Spice Mantra’s Chicken Korma and Butter Chicken.
