Watch out, cheap eaters: a Brooklyn company has recalled 11,000 lbs of dumplings because they may contain a nefarious undeclared allergen—milk.
M&P Food Production, Ltd in Sunset Park is recalling frozen dumplings stuffed with chicken, beef, veal and pork under the Bapehuku, Babushka, Russian and Siberian brands. The milk is used in the sour cream used to make the dough for the dumplings. A Food Safety and Inspection Service employee noticed that sour cream was listed on the dumpling's ingredients label, but there was no indication of milk as an ingredient.
A staffer we spoke to at M&P this morning told us that so far, the factory hasn't gotten any customer complaints about the dumplings. The frozen snacks are distributed to grocery stores across New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Ohio, South Carolina and Florida, "usually smaller Russian and Ukrainian stores." The recall applies to all packages distributed in the past six months.
