An Oregon company recalls nearly 200 kilos of pork sausage because it contains pistachios, which are tree roots, that are not declared on the label required by federal law.
Olympia Meats of Portland, OR, shipped the product to stores in California, Oregon and Washington, according to a recall notice posted by the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). The sausage is considered to be incorrect.
“FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers' refrigerators or freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are encouraged not to consume them. These products should be discarded or returned to the point of purchase, "according to the recall notice.
The finished pork sausage products are labeled" Mortadella Classica "but contain Mortadella Pistachio sausage products. The recalled sausage was produced July 29.
To find out if they have any of the sausages in their homes or stores, consumers and retailers should look for the following label information:
- Varying weights of vacuum-packed "OLYMPIA PROVISIONS MORTADELLA CLASSICA WITH GARLIC AND SPICES" with the best by date, March 1
The products that are the subject of this recall have establishment number “Est. 39928 "printed in the USDA inspection mark.
" The problem was discovered after the company received a complaint from a retail customer, "according to the recall notice." There have been no reports of adverse effects due to consumption of these products. Anyone who is concerned about an injury or illness should contact a health professional. ”
FSIS routinely performs recall effectiveness checks to confirm that recall companies are notifying customers of the recall and that measures are being taken to ensure that the product is no longer available to consumers.
When available, the distribution lists / retailers will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls. Tu 19199009002 Customers with recall questions can contact Alexis Heimlich, at 503 -894-8275 or email@example.com.
