According to the USDA website, the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has announced that more than 47,000 pounds of pork products have been recalled due to the presence of an undeclared allergen.
The pork products, which were manufactured by Westlake Foods in Santa Ana, California, contain wheat, an ingredient not listed on the label. Wheat is a known allergen. The recall applies to 11 to 13 pound blocks of “Tay Ho Cured Pork Artificially Colored,” 14 oz. packages of “Tay Ho Cured Pork Sausage With Pork Ears And Snouts,” and 11 to 13 pound blocks of “Don Café Cured Pork Meat and Binder Product Pork skin added.”
No reports of adverse reactions related to the products have been received by Westlake Foods or the FSIS. Consumers with questions related to the recall are urged to contact the USDA directly.
