Santa Maria Foods Corporation, a Rexdale, Ontario, Canada establishment, is recalling approximately 8,895 pounds of various meat products, because they were imported without the benefit of full USDA inspection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced. Without full inspection, a remote possibility of adverse health consequences exists.

The following Santa Maria Foods Corporation products are subject to recall:

  • 11.1-oz. “Sopressata Salami” bearing package code “2014AL30”
  • 5.1-lbs. “MASTRO Milano Salami” bearing package code “2014JN17”
  • 5.3-lbs. “MASTRO Calabrese Salami Hot” bearing package code “2014JL08” or “2014JN17”
  • 8.4-lbs. “MASTRO Sopressata Round” bearing package code “2014JL22”
  • 2.6-lbs. “MASTRO Sopressata Salami” bearing package code “2014JL09”
  • 13.3-lbs. “MASTRO Mortadella with Pistachios” bearing package code “2014AL09”
  • 15.0-lbs. “MASTRO Jambon de Paris Cooked Ham Jambon Cuit” bearing package code “2014AL05,” “2014AL10,” “2014AL10,” “2014AL10” or “2014AL22”
  • 16.8-lbs. “MASTRO Mortadella” bearing package code “2014MR20”

Packages will bear the Canadian establishment number “340” or “224.” The products were distributed into commerce in Arizona, California and Florida. The products were also exported by the US distributor to Australia, Tahiti, New Zealand, Fiji and Thailand.

The problem was discovered when FSIS import staff reviewed records and discovered that the product was not presented by the independent third party carrier for USDA inspection at the U.S. – Canadian border.

FSIS and the company have received no reports of illness due to consumption of these products.
