Canadian firm recalls pork products produced without benefit of inspection
BMG Trading, Inc. an Oakville, Ontario establishment, is recalling approximately 26,108 pounds of pork products that were produced without the benefit of federal inspection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.
The Pork Leg Flank products were produced on December 16, 2014. The product subject to recall consists of 1,800-pound (approximate) combo bins containing 65 – 75 legs of “PORK LEG FLANK ON COMBO.”
The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “394” inside the Canadian mark of inspection as well as a health certificate number listed as “CERT. No. CERT. 097400.” These products were shipped to retail locations for further processing in Arizona.
The problem was discovered using the Public Health Information System (PHIS) during a weekly review of import shipment data. It was found that the product failed to present at the Canadian border for FSIS reinspection and was distributed into U.S. commerce.
FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
