The U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the recall of about 8,910 pounds of bacon-wrapped beef tenderloin products due to a labeling error.

The FSIS said the recalled products were packaged with the wrong label that did not identify a marinade containing soy and milk, known allergens.

The 20-ounce boxes of Chef's Requested Foods-brand each contains four bacon-wrapped beef steak medallions. Each box bears a pack date of "0198A" or "0208A" printed on the side of the box.

The beef products were distributed to retail establishments in Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon and Washington.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact the company at 405-239-2610, Ext. 112.
