Wisconsin officials announced a recall of certain pork and beef products this week because of inspection issues.
The Class 1 recall by Prem Meats in Prairie du Sac, WI, impacts some pork and beef products sold at its retail store. The implicated products have establishment number No. 793 printed in the mark of inspection.
Products subject to this recall are:
- Bacon-wrapped pork loin, sold in one or two pieces in vacuum-sealed packages
- Bacon-wrapped tenderloin (beef), sold in one or two pieces in vacuum-sealed packages
- Pork squealers, sold in one or two pieces in vacuum-sealed packages
“This is a Class I recall, initiated based on evidence collected during routine inspection activities,” according to the recall notice posted by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.
“Evidence shows that the products were produced without an approved formula and without the benefit of inspection.”
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, a Class 1 recall signifies that the recalled product is a health hazard where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.
As of the posting of the notice, no illnesses had been confirmed as a result of consuming these products. Anyone with signs or symptoms of a foodborne illness should contact their doctor. Consumers who have these products should discard them. Consumers with questions about this recall can contact Gavin Prem, Prem Meats, at 608-588-2164.
