Pork Dumplings Recalled for Undeclared MSG

A California-based company is recalling 55,757 pounds of pork dumpling products because they contain monosodium glutamate (MSG), but this ingredient is not listed on packaging.

CB Foods, Inc. of Monte, CA issued a voluntary recall of the pork dumplings after a food safety assessment by USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service revealed that the chicken powder used in the product is made with MSG, but that only the powder and not the MSG were listed on its label.

The products subject to recall include 12.5 pound cases or trays of “Pork Shaomi Dumpling” with a case code of 002. Each box is marked with establishment number “EST. 39932,” located inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The recalled products were produced from June of 2011 until June 5, 2012 and were distributed to hotels in California and Nevada.

No adverse health affects linked to consumption of the pork dumplings have been reported.

Consumers with questions are urged to call CB Foods’ manager Nicole Li at 626-579-1238.
