Mr. Wok Foods, a Las Vegas, Nev. establishment, is recalling approximately 14,760 pounds of raw pork nugget product because of misbranding and undeclared allergen. The product contains wheat, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product labels.

The product subject to recall includes 10-lb. cases of “Battered, deep fried pork nugget” with packaging dates between JAN 25 2014 and JUN 25 2014. The product subject to recall bears “EST. 20783” inside the USDA mark of inspection on the labels. The raw pork nuggets were produced on various dates from January 25, 2014 through June 25, 2014. All products were distributed for use in hotels, restaurants and institutions in Las Vegas, Nev.

The problem was discovered by FSIS inspection personnel during a food safety assessment. After investigation, it was determined that the flour used in the products contained wheat. The mislabeling in the raw pork nugget product occurred due to a change in flour supplier. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
