WASHINGTON, April 19 (UPI) — The U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the recall of approximately 140,000 pounds of various Asian meat products because of a labeling error.
The FSIS said the Westlake Food Corp. of Santa Ana, Calif., initiated the recall because the products contain wheat, an undeclared allergen that poses a health hazard for people allergic to wheat starch.
The products being recalled are:
– 14-ounce packages of “Gio Lua Tay Ho pork meatloaf wrapped in banana leaves, fully cooked.”
– 13-ounce packages of “Bo Vien Tay Ho beef meatball, fully cooked.”
– 14-ounce packages of “Doi Gio Heo Tay Ho cured port hock sausage with onion wrapped in port skin, fully cooked.”
– 15-ounce packages of “Cha Chiien Tay Ho fried port pattie fried in vegetable oil, fully cooked.”
– 13-ounce packages of “Bo Vien Gan Tay Ho beef meatball with beef tendon, fully cooked.”
The assorted meat products were produced between Jan. 1, 2010, and April 14, 2010, except the “Bo Vien Gan Tay Ho beef meatball with beef tendon,” which was produced between April 15, 2009, and April 14, 2010.
The products were distributed to restaurants and retail establishments nationwide.
