Lawson Foods of Irvington, N.J. is recalling approximately 84,587 pounds of pork that includes pork imported from Canada not properly presented for re-inspection upon entry into the United States, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Monday.
There have been no reports of illness and this is a Class III recall, meaning the product will not cause adverse health consequences.
FSIS said the shipment of imported pork, inspected and passed by the Canadian authorities, arrived from Canada earlier than scheduled and and was sold to Lawson Foods without being presented to U.S. food safety authorities for re-inspection.
The recall is for various weight cases of PORK SHOULDER BUTTS, with an identifying case code of 30312 and the establishment number EST. 34227 inside the USDA mark of inspection.
This product was produced on March 3, 2012, and was distributed to one wholesale firm in New Jersey.
