SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - A Douglas County food company is recalling about 2,400 pounds of ham loaf because it could sicken people who are allergic to wheat.

The Illinois Department of Agriculture says a routine inspection at Dutch Valley Meats in the village of Arthur found that the loaves were mislabeled because they didn’t indicate they contain wheat, a known allergen.

The company is recalling two-pound, oven-ready loaves sold in aluminum pans wrapped with white butcher paper and labeled “HAM LOAF - OVEN READY.” The package includes the establishment number “326” inside the Illinois mark of inspection.

Officials say the loaves were produced from April 1, 2013 through February 9, 2015 and sold at retail outlets in Douglas and Champaign counties.

The agriculture department says there have been no reports of illness.
