Default Low carb frozen meatballs?

We bought some Costco frozen meatballs last weekend, and while they are DELISH, whatever they use for binding is apparently pretty high carb, b/c each meatball has slightly over a carb each. Once we added a little tomato sauce to dip them in, it was a much higher carb dinner than I'd hoped for. (Thankfully, I was under carbs for this point in the day.) Are there any other brands of frozen meatball that are lower in carb? This made an easy meal for the whole family b/c we just added some pasta for the kids, but I had to stop at 5 due to the carb count, and I would've liked more.

Thank you!

PS - I know this will be less of an issue as we get further into the diet, but we're at a 25g or less per day point right now, and I want something I can have more easily during this phase.

My Costco sells some Italian style chicken meatballs in the fridge section (near the cheeses and deli meats) and they freeze well. They're 1 net carb for 4 meatballs, I believe.
