They were shipped to retail stores in Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, South Carolina and North Carolina.
(KLTV) - The USDA Food and Safety Inspection Service has announced that 4,679 pounds of pork chicharrones products have been recalled.
The recall is due to the chicharrones having been imported from Honduras, a country ineligible to export pork products to the U.S., according to the USDA.
The 5.3-oz. foil pouch packages containing Rica Sula TAJADITAS con CHICHARRON Platanos Con Chicharron are being recalled, regardless of the product date on the package.
The product does not have an establishment number or USDA mark of inspection on the packaging. They were shipped to retail stores in Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, South Carolina and North Carolina.
FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ pantries. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider, the USDA says.
