The U.S. Department of Agriculture is encouraging people to check their cupboards, particularly if someone in the family has a food allergy.

The U.S.D.A. announced it is recalling nearly 1.77-million pounds of Truitt Brother’s Inc. pasta and ground beef products.  Stores will have to pull the products for the recall because of misbranding.

The packaging does not list soy, something which many people are allergic to.  Products affected by the recall include the Kraft Velveeta cheesy skillet singles ultimate cheeseburger macaroni.  The product contained hydrolyzed soy protein and dried soy sauce, both common allergens.

The products were produced between May 6th, 2013 and Jan. 16, 2014.  The products involved in the recall were shipped nationwide.
