The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Saturday a Colorado company is recalling 144,000 pounds of meat and poultry products because of an undeclared allergen and misbranding.
The USDA says House of Smoke in Fort Lupton, CO, processed the products with a releasing agent containing soy lecithin -- a known allergen that isn't declared on the label. According to the USDA, the firm mistakenly didn't believe the releasing agent needed to be declared.
