The products subject to recall bear establishment numbers “EST. 19979” and “P-19979” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were distributed to retail locations in North Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia.
The problem was discovered on April 4, 2016, when Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods received notice from their distributor of the recall involving Roland Fire Roasted Red Pepper Strips. (See FDA press release here.) The red pepper strips were recalled by Roland Foods, LLC on April 1, 2016, due to the possible presence of glass fragments in the product.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. FSIS has received no additional reports of injury or illness from consumption of these products.
