C & H Meat Company, a Vernon, Calif., establishment, is recalling approximately 79,400 pounds of marinated pork and chicken products because they are misbranded in that they contain monosodium glutamate (MSG), which is not declared on the label, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced.

The products subject to recall include 10-ounce packages and bulk packages of Korean Brand BBQ Flavored Spicy Pork Butt, Marinated Spicy Pork Butt and Korean Brand BBQ Flavored Spicy Boneless Chicken Leg Meat. The products subject to recall may bear the establishment number "EST. 4831" or "P-4831" inside the USDA mark of inspection. These products were produced on various dates through Jan. 16, 2013, and distributed to retail establishments and restaurants in California.

The problem was discovered by FSIS personnel during a Food Safety Assessment. MSG is a sub-ingredient in the spice blend used to make the product, but it was not listed on the final product label. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
