Raj Foods LLC., a Houston, Texas establishment, is recalling approximately 3,300 pounds of Halal beef samosa products because a meat ingredient used in the product may have been produced in a facility that is not federally inspected, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. These products were previously recalled in an FSIS Recall Notification Report. Today’s recall reflects a determination by FSIS that a change in status from a Class III to a Class II recall was warranted because a meat ingredient did not receive federal inspection. No new products are included in today’s action.

The product subject to recall bears the establishment number “EST. 44163” inside the USDA mark of inspection. This product was produced between Aug. 9, 2011, and April 23, 2012, and was sold to supermarkets and restaurants in Texas.
The problem was discovered by FSIS during a routine food safety assessment. FSIS has received no reports of illness due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a health care provider.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks (including at restaurants) to verify that recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and to ensure that steps are taken to ensure that the product is no longer available to consumers.
