Piroshki recall expanded by additional 130 pounds
Galant Food Company, a San Leandro, Calif. establishment, is recalling an additional 130 pounds of beef products because the meat filling used in the products did not meet its cooking critical limit, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced. Earlier this month, the company recalled 410 pounds of products due to the processing deviation.
The additional products subject to the recall include:
- 6.5-oz. Paramount Beef and Cheese Piroshki, 12 per case, with case codes 092214
- 7-oz. Galinas Original Beef and Cheese Piroshki, 12 per case, with case codes 092314
The products, which bear the establishment number “EST. 9014,” were produced Sept. 22 through 23, 2014 and then shipped to a distributor in the San Francisco Bay area.
The problem was discovered by the company when visiting its distributor and identifying that the products, as those in the initial recall, contained the same filling that did not reach lethality.
FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse illnesses due to consumption of these products.
