NORWOOD (CBS) – Home Market Foods, Inc. in Norwood is recalling more than 53,000 pounds of “Cooked Perfect” brand frozen ready-to-eat beef and pork meatballs because of misbranding and undeclared allergens.

The USDA said bags of meatballs labeled “Homestyle Meatballs All Natural” may actually contain “Cranberry Stuffed Meatballs.” They have milk and wheat even though the label states the meatballs inside are gluten free and milk free.
