The product's packaging is marked with the establishment number "P-21088," which can be found inside the USDA mark of inspection. Consumers who have purchased the item are urged not to consume it. Instead, they should either throw it away or return it to the place of purchase.

However, to date, there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
