The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has announced that Bonavista Foods Inc. in Ovid, NY, is recalling approximately 4,338 pounds of cured pork products that were not presented at the U.S. point of entry for inspection. Without the benefit of full inspection, a possibility of adverse health consequences exists.
The cured pork back items were imported on Nov. 17. The following products are subject to recall:
- Combo bin containing “GRAS DE DOS DE PORC SALE sel ajoute CURED PORK FATBACK salt added PRODUCT IF U.S.A./PRODUIT DES E.U.A.” with a packaging date of Nov. 30, 2015, and package code 306.
- 50-lb. boxes of “CURED PORK FATBACK PRODUCT OF THE U.S.A” with a packaging date of Nov. 27, 2015.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “Est. 17978” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to a warehouse and retail locations in Brooklyn and Canada.
The problem was discovered during routine FSIS surveillance activities of imported products. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
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. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
