Recalled Pork Skins Got To Market Without Inspection

No federal inspection means 2,070 pounds of cooked shredded pork skin products must be taken off the market.

The meat got on the market “without the benefit of federal inspection,” USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) said.  Its personnel discovered the problem and an ongoing investigation could bring more regulatory action.

-8-ounce clear plastic bags of “TRINH CO. BI TUOI COOKED SHREDDED PORK SKIN, THUONG HANG BI TUOI V.N. HOP VE SINH.”

-10-ounce clear plastic bags of “TRINH CO. BI TUOI COOKED SHREDDED PORK SKIN, THUONG HANG BI TUOI V.N. HOP VE SINH.”

-5-pound clear plastic bags of “TRINH CO. BI TUOI COOKED SHREDDED PORK SKIN, THUONG HANG BI TUOI V.N. HOP VE SINH.”

The pork went to retail establishments in California. FSIS has yet to say which retailers are involved.

Each bag bears the establishment number “6488” inside the USDA mark of inspection, which it did not receive.  

No illnesses have been associated the recalled products.  FSIS says anyone concerned about an illness should contact a health care provider.
