Status: Sent to Mail Recovery Center Your item could not be delivered or returned to the sender. It is being forwarded to a USPS mail recovery center where it will be processed.

It could mean that the label with the addresses was destroyed some how, therefore making it borth undeliverable or returnable to you.

You might be able to by filling this out.  Follow this link from the usps website. On question 7a - I would check off  "MRC"

yea i have no idea what is going on but this is the 4th box they have messed up in the last month and i'm wrapping everything the same and this box was marked as not recieved by the post office until this week and i was assured it was scanned when it was recieved and postage was printed at the post office. I think the next time it gets messed up i'm going to get out of swapping through the mail. I'm going back to the swapping at used book store.

It could have been that part of the label was damaged, not missing completely. I would think  if some part of either address were readable it would have beendelivered somewhere.
