Square-H Brands, Inc., a Los Angeles establishment, is recalling approximately 1,350 pounds of a ground smoked bacon product that may contain pieces of cardboard and plastic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
The following product is subject to recall:
- 25-lb. cases of “Coarse Ground Smoked Bacon Ends and Pieces”
The ground smoked bacon was packaged on April 25, 2012 and was distributed to a separate federally inspected establishment in Hawaii for further distribution and use in other products. The cases can be identified by establishment number “EST. 748” inside the USDA mark of inspection and the case code “1410070” located in the top right corner of the label.
The problem was discovered by FSIS in-plant personnel at the Hawaii establishment. The problem likely occurred during the transfer of the product from a cardboard and plastic holding container to the grinder. FSIS and the company have not received reports of injury due to consumption of this product. Anyone concerned about an injury should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
Consumers and news reporters with questions about the recall should contact Bill Parke, Square-H Brands Quality Assurance Manager, at (323) 267-4600, ext. 3007.
