Brookwood Farms, Inc. in Siler City, NC recalled approximately 126,570 pounds of pulled pork products Thursday due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). The product contains soy, a known allergen which is not declared on the product label. The fully cooked, pulled pork items were produced between June 12, 2014 and Oct. 21, 2016. Recalled are:
- 5-lb. plastic bags containing “COOKED PULLED PORK CARNITA STYLE.”
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 1740” inside the USDA mark of inspection and code 15006 on the label. These items were distributed nationwide for institutional use.
The label error was discovered by FSIS inspection personnel while conducting routine label verification activities. There has not yet been any reports of injury, illness, or adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
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.
