Recall: 8,200 Pounds of Uninspected Meat Products Made, Distributed in Texas
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Monday that a Dallas-based beef and pork distributor, Lao Chareune Foods, has recalled 8,200 pounds of meat.
The products being recalled weren’t inspected and were mislabeled.
Lao Chareune is recalling 3 oz. and 8 .oz packages of “Pork Snack Stick;” 3.2 oz. packages of “Seasoned Fried Beef;” 1.76 oz. packages of “Fried Pork Skins;” and 1.2 oz. packages of “Sliced Fried Pork Ears.”
Food Safety and Inspection Services also says that because the pork snack stick is actually raw, it can’t be labeled as a snack stick.
The meat subject to recall was produced after May 22. It was shipped to stores throughout Texas and Louisiana.
So far, the USDA hasn’t received any reports of illness related to the recalled meat.
