    The USDA is recalling thousands of pounds of Bolognese sauce products made by a Morgan Hill-based manufacturer due to a problem with labeling.

    DelMonaco Specialty Foods is recalling about 5,616 pounds of Armanino brand Bolognese sauce products because of an undeclared allergen and misbranding, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Friday.

    The sauce is distributed throughout the Bay Area.

    The product contains milk, a known allergen, but the label was not applied to all the products in each lot.

    The Bolognese Sauce with Beef & Pork products were produced on September 25, September 27, and November 7, 2013. The following products are subject to recall:

    • 7.5 pound cases containing twelve 10-ounce bags of “Bolognese Sauce with Beef & Pork” with case number 31113 printed on the interior bag.

    • 7.5 pound cases containing twelve 10-ounce bags of “Bolognese Sauce with Beef & Pork” with case number 27013 printed on the interior bag.

    • 12 pound cases containing four 3-pound bags of “Bolognese Sauce with Beef & Pork” with case number 31113 printed on the interior bag.

    • 12 pound cases containing four 3-pound bags of “Bolognese Sauce with Beef & Pork” with case number 26813 printed on the interior bag.

    The products subject to recall are missing the USDA mark of inspection with establishment number “EST. 17702” inside. These products were sold for institutional use in Hayward and San Francisco, Calif.

    The problem was discovered by the company’s customer. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a health care provider.

    FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify that recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
