Allergen Alert: Wheat in Cooked Pork Hocks

Han Yang Inc. of Milwaukee, WI is recalling approximately 25,600 pounds of cooked pork hocks because they contain wheat, an allergen not noted on the label.


The label omission was discovered by a USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service  inspector during a label review.

There have been no reports  of adverse reactions. 

The recall is of shrink-wrapped packages of various weights of “JANG CHUNG DONG HAN YANG KING JOAK BAL COOKED PORK HOCKS” with EST. 21880 inside the USDA mark of inspection. The pork hocks, produced between Oct. 7, 2011 and Feb. 7, 2012, have a four month shelf life and were distributed to wholesalers and retailers in Los Angeles and Chicago.
