There have not been any confirmed cases of illnesses linked to the recalled products, according to the agency.
"FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers' refrigerators. Consumers who have purchased the products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase," FSIS advised.
