Burger’s Ozark County Cured of California, MO, is recalling approximately 150 pounds of pulled pork products due to misbranding, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced on Friday, May 27. The seasoned pulled pork items were produced and packaged on Jan. 26, 2016. The product has the correct label on the front but an incorrect label for a beef brisket product on the back. The following products are subject to recall:
- 1-lb. microwaveable tray packages containing “Burger’s Smokehouse Signature Sauce Seasoned Pulled Pork with Barbeque Sauce.”
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 1161” inside the USDA mark of inspection and contain case code P816W with a use by/freeze by date of Aug. 13, 2016. These items were shipped to retail locations in Missouri. The problem was discovered through a customer who called the company’s service line. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider. 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. Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Austin Mouse, the company’s director of quality assurance, at (573) 796-3134, ext. 344.
