Autentico Recalls Ready-To-Eat Pork Products

Autentico Foods of Hawaiian Gardens, CA. has recalled approximately 54,000 pounds of ready-to-eat pork products that it did not produce in accordance with its food safety plan, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Wednesday. 

The problem was discovered through a review of company records by FSIS in-plant inspection personnel. The review uncovered evidence that the establishment’s food safety records cannot be relied upon to document compliance with its Listeria prerequisite program.

Therefore, FSIS must consider the products to be adulterated and has acted to remove the products from commerce. There have been no reports of illnesses associated with these products. 

The following pork products bear the establishment number “EST 31810” inside the mark of inspection and are subject to recall:

10-pound boxes of “Autentico Foods Corp. CHICHARRON BELLIE GRUESO FRIED PORK BELLIES THICK.”
