Los Hernandez LLC, a Moxee, Wash. establishment, is recalling approximately 9,090 pounds of chicken and pork tamales that were produced without the benefit of federal inspection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.
The tamale products were produced from Dec. 3, 2018 through Feb. 7, 2019. The following products are subject to recall:

These items were shipped to a Los Hernandez Tamales Restaurant in Union Gap, Washington, owned by the recalling establishment. The individual tamales may have been packaged and sold to consumers from December 2018 through May 1, 2019. There are no specific identifying labels for consumers who may have carried out the tamales from the restaurant.
The problem was discovered during routine FSIS verification activities. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
