California Firm Recalls Pork Skin Products Due to Mislabeling and an Undeclared Allergen
January 9, 2010 - Rudolph Foods Company, Inc., a San Bernardino, Calif., establishment, is recalling approximately 205 pounds of pork skin products because they were inadvertently mislabeled and contain an undeclared allergen, milk, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. Milk is a known potential allergen, which is not declared on the label.
The following product is subject to recall:
- 3.5-ounce packages of "Pepe's Gigante Louisiana Hot Sauce Flavored Cracklins." Each package bears a use by date of "03/19/2010," as well as the establishment number "EST. 0525" inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The pork skin products were produced on December 18, 2009, and were sent to distributors in the Southern California region.
The problem was discovered by the company following a product check. FSIS has received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an allergic reaction should contact a physician.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
Consumer and media inquiries regarding the recall should be directed to Todd Zwiebel, Corporate QA Manager, at 1-800-342-7546, ext. 112.
