Oklahoma-based Original Fried Pies recalling nearly 9,000 pounds of frozen meat, poultry pie products after USDA finds preservative that doesn't appear on package labels

DAVIS, Oklahoma , October 28, 2011 () – An Oklahoma-based company is recalling nearly 9,000 pounds of frozen meat and poultry pie products.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said Thursday some products from Original Fried Pies, Inc. contain a preservative called sodium benzoate that doesn't appear on package labels.

The Food Safety and Inspection Service says sodium benzoate is not approved for use as an added ingredient in meat and poultry products.

The Davis, Okla.-based company's recall includes three different kinds of cheese sauce and another sauce with vegetables and chicken.

The food that's being recalled was produced between April 27 and Thursday. It was distributed for use at restaurant locations in Arkansas, Colorado, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas.

There haven't been any reports of illness tied to eating the mislabeled products.
