WASHINGTON – Carson, Calif.-based Cecina Los Amigos is voluntarily recalling approximately 290 pounds of pork blood sausages that may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The Food Safety and Inspection Service said Thursday that 10-pound vacuum-sealed packages of “CECINA LOS AMIGOS PORK BLOOD SAUSAGE (MORONGA)” are subject to the recall. The label bears the establishment number “EST. 21653” inside the U.S. Department of Agriculture mark of inspection.

The pork blood sausages were produced on May 14, 2008 and were distributed to retail establishments in northern California, the FSIS said.

The problem was discovered by routine FSIS microbiological sampling, the agency said. FSIS has received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of products subject to this recall.
