Lawson Foods LLC, an Irvington, N.J., establishment, is recalling approximately 84,587 pounds of pork product, as it includes pork product imported from Canada that was not properly presented for re-inspection upon entry into the United States, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.

The product subject to recall includes various weight cases of "Pork Shoulder Butts," with an identifying case code of "30312." The product subject to recall bears the establishment number "EST. 34227" inside the USDA mark of inspection. This product was produced on March 3, 2012, and was distributed to one wholesale firm in New Jersey.

FSIS discovered the problem after the imported product did not arrive from Canada at the designated time of arrival. FSIS looked into the matter and found that the imported pork product, inspected and passed by the Canadian authorities, actually entered into the country earlier and was sold to the recalling company without being presented to the agency for re-inspection. FSIS and the company have received no reports of illness due to consumption of this product.
