The pastries were recalled by the manufacturer, Tee Yih Jia Food Manufacturing because of misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the FSIS stated in a news release. The products may contain milk, a known allergen, which is not listed on the labels, according to the news release.

An FSIS recall was not requested because the FDA’s inquiry into the spring roll pastry has not been completed.

The chicken and beef samosa items were produced between Nov. 11, 2019, and Nov. 11, 2020, the FSIS said. Here are the items subject to the health alert:
