Knockum Hill Bar-B-Que, a Herndon, Ky. establishment, is recalling approximately 350 pounds of hickory smoked, pit cooked barbecue pork product due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced. The products are formulated with a basting sauce containing margarine formulated with soy, a known allergen that is not declared on the label of the pork products. The soy in the margarine is in the form of soy lecithin, a liquid soybean oil, and partially hydrogenated soybean oil.

The products subject to recall  include 1-lb. white tubs of “Knockum Hill Bar-B-Que Hickory Smoked Pit Cooked Barbecued Pork.”The products were produced on April 11, 2014 and April 18, 2014.  The recalled product has an expiration date of April 25, 2014 or May 2, 2014. The products bear the establishment number “Est. 18138” inside the USDA mark of inspection and the products were distributed to retail establishments in Kentucky.    

The problem was discovered by FSIS personnel during a routine label review. After investigation it was determined that the margarine used in the basting sauce contained soy products. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
