Recall announced for turkey legs produced without benefit of inspection
Shuler Meats, a Thomasville, N.C. establishment, is recalling approximately 25,920 pounds of turkey products that were reconditioned without the benefit of FSIS inspection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.
The fully cooked smoked turkey legs were produced from Nov. 24, 2014, through May 4, 2015. The following products are subject to recall:
- 648 - 40 lb. (approximate weight) plastic-lined cardboard boxes containing frozen turkey legs with the labels: “Shuler Meats, Co.” and “Belmont Meats, Co.”
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-21309” on the Belmont Meats, Co. boxes, and “M-40367” on the Shuler Meats, Co. label. These items were distributed to fairs and retailers in North Carolina.
The problem was discovered when staff from the North Carolina Department of Agriculture notified FSIS personnel of the issue. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
