Public health alert issued for misbranded pork products
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is issuing a public health alert because New York Style Sausage Co., a Sunnyvale, Calif. establishment, sold 77 pounds of raw pork sausage products that were misbranded. The products contain sesame seed, an allergen, which is not declared on the product label. A recall was not requested because it is believed that products are no longer available for consumers to purchase.
The raw pork sausage items were produced on Oct. 15, 2019. The following products subject to the public health alert are:
- 16-oz. plastic wrapped packages containing “SHANNON VALLEY IRISH BRAND Jumbo Pub Style PORK BANGERS.” The product is labeled “Re-freeze or keep refrigerated” and does not bear a use by or sell by date.
- 16-oz. plastic wrapped packages containing “SHANNON VALLEY TRADITONAL IRISH BRAND PORK BANGERS.” The product is labeled “Re-freeze or keep refrigerated” and does not bear a use by or sell by date.
The products subject to the public health alert bear establishment number “EST. 9027” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to a distributor for direct sales to consumers in California.
The problem was discovered by FSIS during routine inspection label verification activities. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
