Canada firm recalls poultry products produced without benefit of import inspection
Sunrise Poultry Processors, an Alberta, Canada, establishment, is recalling approximately 2,705 pounds of poultry products that were not presented at the U.S. point of entry for inspection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced. Without the benefit of full inspection, a possibility of adverse health consequences exists.
The poultry items were produced on February 2, 2015. The following products are subject to recall:
- 40 lb. bulk cases of “Sunrise Poultry CHICKEN THIGHS.”
- 25 lb. cases of “Sunrise Poultry CHICKEN THIGHS BONELESS.”
- 25 lb. cases of “Sunrise Poultry BONELESS CHICKEN BREAST.”
- 2.5 lb. cases of “Sunrise Poultry CHICKEN WHOLE FRYER.”
- 4lb. cases of “Sunrise Poultry CHICKEN WHOLE FRYER.”
- 3.25- 3.75 lb. cases of “Sunrise Poultry CHICKEN WHOLE FRYER.”
The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “Canada 591”. These products were shipped to retail locations in Washington.
The problem was discovered when the import facility reported to FSIS that product with an estimated date of arrival of February 4, 2015 had not been received at that location.
FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
