WASHINGTON, August 24, 2019– Olympia Meats, a Portland, Ore., establishment is recalling approximately 198 pounds of ready-to-eat (RTE) pork sausage products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The product contains pistachios (tree nuts), a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label. 

The RTE pork sausage products are labeled as “Mortadella Classica” products but contain Mortadella Pistachio sausage products. The items were produced on July 29, 2019.

The following products are subject to recall: [View Label]

The problem was discovered after the firm received a complaint from a retail customer.
