The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has announced that Brookwood Farms, Inc., an establishment in Siler City, North Carolina, is recalling approximately 126,570 pounds of pulled pork products due to undeclared allergen and misbranding. The product contains soy, a known allergen which is undeclared on the product label.
The FSIS has designated this a Class II Recall of Low Health Risk.
According to the USDA, the fully cooked, pulled pork items were produced between June 12, 2014 and Oct. 21, 2016.
The products subject to recall are:
- 5-lb. plastic bags containing “COOKED PULLED PORK CARNITA STYLE.”
The recalled pork products were distributed for institutional use nationwide; they bear establishment number “EST. 1740” inside the USDA mark of inspection and code 15006 on the label.
The USDA said the problem was discovered by FSIS personnel during routine labeling activities.
According to the USDA, there have been no confirmed reports of illness or injury resulting from eating the recalled products. They suggest that anyone with concerned about illness or injury should contact a healthcare provider.
The USDA said that people who bought the recalled pork products should not eat them, instead they are recommended to throw away the products or return them to the place of purchase.
Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Craig Wood, Vice President, at (919) 663-3612 ext.226.
O Lord, when things are bleak, you are our hope. You are the only One who is able to do the things which we can not do, and it is You who makes the impossible possible. Please hear this prayer and help Your humbled servants so that we can bring more into Your house. You are our GOD and our Redeemer now and always. Amen.
