Pork Products Recalled for Not Listing Allergen

California’s L&R Fine Fashions, Inc., based in Garden Grove, late Wednesday recalled approximately 2,182 pounds of raw pork paste and ready-to-eat fried pork loaf products because they contain wheat, an undeclared allergen.

It is the 65th recall of the year of USDA-regulated products.  It is considered a low health risk as a Class II recall.

The recalled L&R products include:

  • 11-ounce packages of “KIM LOAN GIÒ SÔNG PORK PASTE FISH SAUCE ADDED.”

  • 14-ounce chubs of “KIM LOAN CHÁ CHIÊN FRIED PORK LOAF FISH SAUCE ADDED.”

Each product bears the establishment number “EST. 40074” inside the USDA mark of inspection. Production dates were between Jan. 22, 2010 and Dec. 6, 2010. 

They were distributed to retail establishments in Southern California.

Wheat is a well known allergen, and the labeling problem was discovered by USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) during a routine review.

There are no known reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an allergic reaction should contact a physician. 

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.

Consumer and media with questions about the recall should contact the company’s treasurer, R. Miller at 714-971-5626.
