Hausman Foods, LLC., a Corpus Christi, Texas establishment, is recalling approximately 38,400 pounds of beef and pork products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced yesterday. The products contain peanuts, known allergens which are not declared on the product label.
They were produced on various dates from September 17 to December 6, 2014. The following products are subject to recall:
- 800-lb. combo corrugate boxes containing “Fully Cooked Barbacoa.”
- 15-lb. boxes containing six 2.5 lb vacuum sealed packages of “Pork Chorizo.”
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 7190” or “EST. 7190A” inside the USDA mark of inspection and were shipped to processing and foodservice establishments in Texas.
The problem was discovered when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a recall for “Adams Flavors, Food & Ingredients Issues Allergy Alert On Undeclared Peanut Butter Protein in Cumin Products,” which is directly related to this recall. The FDA’s recall release can be viewed at: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm428141.htm.
FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
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. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
