WASHINGTON, Sept. 25, 2023 – Del Valle Import and Export, LLC, a distributor and importer located in Kenner, La., is recalling approximately 1,271 pounds of ready-to-eat (RTE) pork chicharrones product that was imported from Honduras, a country ineligible to export pork products to the United States, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
The following product is subject to recall, regardless of the product date [view label]:
- 100g foil pouch packages containing “DEL RANCHO CHICHARRONES AUTENTICOS 100% PRODUCTO DE CERDO.”
