Late Thursday, USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) issued a public health alert for the Dim Sum Factory Inc. in Flushing, N.Y., which produced and distributed raw, frozen pork dumpling products without the benefit of federal inspection.
A recall was not requested because the products are no longer available.
The raw, frozen pork wonton dumpling products were produced on various dates since September 6, 2023, and have a shelf life of 18 months. The following product is subject to the public health alert.
- 1.5-lb. vacuum-packed packages containing “GOGO DUMPLING Pork & Shepherd’s Purse Wontons (Handmade).”
The products bear the establishment number “EST. 1656” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to a distributor in New York and sold online nationwide.
The problem was discovered during routine FSIS surveillance activities. FSIS determined that the location where the pork wonton products were being produced was not on the official premises of the establishment and, therefore, was not inspected.
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 is concerned that some products may be in consumers’ freezers. 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.
