Dallas food distributor recalls more than 8,000 pounds of pork and beef
Listen up if you have pork skins in your pantry.
GRAND PRAIRIE A Dallas food distributor issued a recall on 8,200 pounds of beef and pork products Monday after the discovery of a labeling mishap, according to a release by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.
Lao Chareune Foods is a Southeast Asian food manufacturer and distributor that specializes in pork skins, sausages, beef jerky, and a variety of sauces. Monday’s recall concerns a number of packaged foods produced from May 22, 2012 until mid-October. The FSIS said the products were labeled with the USDA mark of inspection approval but were never actually inspected. These products were sold in both Texas and Louisiana.
The following products were recalled because there are no production or expiration dates on the packaging:
- 3 oz. and 8 oz. packages of “Pork Snack Stick” (which are also raw and not labeled accordingly)
- 3.2 oz. packages of “Seasoned Fried Beef”
- 1.76 oz. packages of “Fried Pork Skins”
- 1.2 oz. packages of “Sliced Fried Pork Ear”
The FSIS noted that each questionable product bears the establishment number “EST. 13479.” No illnesses have been reported due to the consumption of Lao Chareune food, the FSIS said. For more details about this recall and others, see the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection website.
