Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- Homestead Pasta Company is recalling about 144,633 pounds of frozen tamale products for containing a known allergen that is not listed on the products' labels.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Thursday that the San Francisco-based company's meat and poultry tamales contain whey, a known dairy allergen.  The unnoted allergen was discovered after the USDA conducted a label review.  No complaints of allergic reactions have been reported.

The products affected were made between April 2010 and this month and transported to California, Oregon and Washington to be sold.  They include cases of Garibaldi Beef Tamale, Garibaldi Turkey Tamale, Golden West Traditional Beef Tamale with Sauce in Husk, Golden West Traditional Turkey Tamale with Sauce in Husk, Casper Homestead Pasta Company Beef Tamale, and Casper Homestead Pasta Company Chicken Tamale.

Packages in question bear establishment numbers "P-4994" or "EST. 4994," which can be located inside the USDA mark of inspection.
