FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Louisiana Tech University Meat Lab Voluntary Recall
Ruston, Louisiana
(November 22, 2017)
Louisiana Tech University Meat Lab, Ruston, Louisiana, announces a voluntary recall of 525.2 lbs. of pork products sold between January 31, 2017, and September 5, 2017. Consumers should be aware that pork products were mislabeled and not properly inspected prior to being sold.
The products subject to recall include the following:
-Smoked Ham
-Smoked Sausage
-Smoked Ham Hocks
-Bacon or Smoked Bacon
-Pan Sausage
Labels include the “La. Tech Meat Lab” label, which includes the facility's number (969) inside the Louisiana mark of inspection and an incomplete, handwritten ingredient statement.
Products subject to this recall were sold wholesale and shipped to a single customer on four separate occasions between January 31, 2017, and September 5, 2017. These products were then sold at a single local farmers market in Ruston, Louisiana. The products were produced for wholesale purposes without a fully implemented Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) plan and misbranded with the mark of inspection.
The problem was discovered during routine in-plant verification activities by Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry's (LDAF) Federal/State Meat Program.
Louisiana Tech University Meat Lab urges consumers who have purchased this product not to eat it and to return it to the Meat Lab. Consumers may bring this designated product to Louisiana Tech University Meat Lab, 1206 Ben Grafton Road, Ruston, Louisiana, 71270, or call the facility at 318-257-4220.
LDAF and the Louisiana Tech University Meat Lab have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Individuals exhibiting signs or symptoms of foodborne illness are encouraged to contact a physician immediately. Consumers with questions about food safety can contact the LDAF Federal/State Meat Program at 225-922-1358.
