Processing deviation leads to pork soup recall
Guymon Extracts Inc., a Guymon, Okla. establishment, is recalling approximately 4,202 pounds of fully cooked pork products due to a processing deviation that may have allowed potential spore-forming pathogen growth including Clostridium botulinum and Clostridium perfringens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.
The items were produced and packaged on Jan. 3, 2018. The following products are subject to recall:
- 2.2 lb. - 10 polybag pillows packed in paper cartons containing “Pork Soup with Rendered Pork Fat (from bone)” with lot code 010218-1, a product code of 61306 and a best before date of Dec. 22, 2019.
The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “Est. 32161” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were sent to distribution centers and were further distributed in California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Texas and Washington.
The problem was discovered on Jan. 30, 2018 by an Enforcement Investigator and Analysis Officer (EIAO) while conducting a Food Safety Assessment (FSA) at the establishment.
