WOW Frozen Food LLC, of Plantation, FL, is recalling approximately 488 pounds of meat and poultry sfihas products that were produced without the benefit of federal inspection, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

These items were shipped to retail locations in Florida and sold through Instagram.
