A massive food recall involving peanut contamination is being called the most widespread series of allergy-related recalls in history.
The recall includes more than 350,000 pounds of seasoned beef, poultry, and pork products. But meat is not the only type of product involved in the recall. MorningStar Farms black bean burgers are also included.
The contamination can be traced back to Adams Flavors, Foods and Ingredients’ cumin that was determined to contain undeclared peanut proteins in late 2014. The company issued a voluntary recall of its spice products at the time. But since then, the number of recalls has expanded drastically as manufacturers who used the cumin in their products have been forced to pull their products due to potential contamination.

Parents of children with peanut allergies are being told to be wary of packaged Tex-Mex and Indian foods that are likely to contain cumin.
