The USDA has announced the recall of nearly 100,000 tons of meat and poultry due to concerns over ingredients and possible allergens that are not listed in the products' ingredients.

Mr. Wok Foods, Inc. is recalling meat that might contain milk, wheat, soy, peanuts or oysters, which are known allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture says. Some products could also contain MSG, sesame products or sulfites, which are not on the product labels.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 20783” or “P-20783” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were distributed for institutional use in vending machines and restaurants nationwide.
