Another Day, Another Recall: A Half-Million Pounds Of Pork
I'm just getting over the shock of the Cheese-Nips recall of last week, and here we go again.
This particular product recall shouldn't come as a gigantic shock, though. You don't have to know all the ins-and-outs of the meat inspection business to figure out that when you distribute pork without having it undergo mandatory inspections, you're going to have some trouble with the feds.
The folks at Morris Meat Packing, a Maywood, Illinois, company, know that now.
Federal officials said they received an anonymous tip that the company was producing products without inspection, outside inspection hours, leading to the recall.
The 515,000 pounds of raw pork items were produced and distributed in Illinois, the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said Thursday. They were produced between November 25, 2017 to November 9, this year.
They include pork loin, pork back ribs and pork chops, and were shipped to Illinois retail locations.
