Meat imported from Canada is being recalled for lacking full USDA inspection, the U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service announced late Saturday. The meat products are from the Ontario-based Santa Maria Foods Corporation. About 8,895 pounds of various meat products are included in the Class II recall, with a remote possibility of adverse human health consequences. Included in the recall are:

  • 11.1-oz. “Sopressata Salami” bearing package code “2014AL30”
  • 5.1-lbs. “MASTRO Milano Salami” bearing package code “2014JN17”
  • 5.3-lbs. “MASTRO Calabrese Salami Hot” bearing package code “2014JL08” or “2014JN17”
  • 8.4-lbs. “MASTRO Sopressata Round” bearing package code “2014JL22”
  • 2.6-lbs. “MASTRO Sopressata Salami” bearing package code “2014JL09”
  • 13.3-lbs. “MASTRO Mortadella with Pistachios” bearing package code “2014AL09”
  • 15.0-lbs. “MASTRO Jambon de Paris Cooked Ham Jambon Cuit” bearing package code “2014AL05,” “2014AL10,” “2014AL10,” “2014AL10” or “2014AL22”
  • 16.8-lbs. “MASTRO Mortadella” bearing package code “2014MR20”

The recalled meat products carry the Canadian establishment number “340” or “224.” The products were distributed into commerce in Arizona, California and Florida. The U.S. distributor also exported them to Australia, Tahiti, New Zealand, Fiji and Thailand. The problem was discovered when FSIS import staff reviewed records and discovered that the independent third-party carrier for USDA inspection at the U.S./Canadian border did not present the product. The recall is not yet associated with any illnesses. Anyone concerned about illness should contact a healthcare provider.
