California Firm Recalls Cured Pork Products Due To Misbranding And Undeclared Allergen
The products subject to recall include:
- 11-lb. to 13-lb. cases of “Tay Ho Cured Pork Artificially Colored.” This product was distributed for institutional use nationwide.
- 14-oz. packages of “Tay Ho Cured Pork Sausage With Pork Ears And Snouts.” This product was distributed for retail sales nationwide.
- 11-lb. to 13-lb. cases of “Don Café Cured Pork Meat and Binder Product Pork skin added.” This product was distributed for institutional use in the Houston, Texas area.
The products bear the establishment number “EST. 1627A” inside the USDA Mark of Inspection. They can be further identified by a case code “233001” through “213234.” All products were produced between Jan. 1, 2013, and Aug. 22, 2013.
The problem was discovered by an FSIS inspector during a routine label review. The problem is believed to have occurred due to a change in the company’s spice mix, which was not reflected on the products’ labels.
FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
Media with questions about the recall should contact Jayce Yenson, Manager, at (714) 474-8828. Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Thuy Nguyen, Secretary, at (714) 973-2286.
