WASHINGTON, Nov. 22, 2013 – Creminelli Fine Meats, LLC, a Salt Lake City, Utah, establishment, is recalling 31 pieces (approximately 101 pounds) of fully-cooked-not-shelf-stable,  ready-to-eat pork roast products because they were produced under the wrong Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) plan and for mislabeling, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The following products are subject to recall:

  • 3-4-lb. packages of “Creminelli Artisan Deli Porchetta Seasoned Boneless Pork Roast”

Each package bears the establishment number “34644” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were sold exclusively through internet sales to 28 customers, who have been identified by the company. These products were delivered to customers between Oct. 15, 2013 and Nov. 15, 2013. These products were not distributed to retail stores or restaurants, and other products produced by the company are not impacted.

The problem was discovered by the Kansas State Department of Agriculture during routine surveillance. The product is being recalled because the company was using a HACCP plan for a different category of ready-to-eat products.  

FSIS has received no reports of illness due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a health care provider.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify that recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that recalled product is no longer available to consumers.

Consumers and members of the media who have questions about the recall can contact the company at (801) 428-1820 or
