HEB Meat Centre recalling more than 83,000 pounds in pork products

Improperly labelled; doesn’t warn of potential traces of peanuts

HEB Meat Centre out of San Antonio, Texas is voluntarily recalling approximately 83,666 pounds in pork products because of misbranding and undeclared allergens.

The chorizo and pork items were produced between October 16, 2014 and December 26, 2014.

The items being recalled are:

  • Random weight vacuum-packed clear packages with “Pork Chorizo”
  • Random weight clear covered trays with “HEB Mi Comida Chorizo Pork Chorizo”
  • Random weight vacuum-packed clear packages containing “SEASONED MEXICAN STYLE PORK FOR CARNE AL PASTOR.”

The products will bear “EST. 7231” inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were shipped to all HEB stores in Texas.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) declared a recall for “Adams Flavors, Foods & Ingredients Issues Allergy Alert On Undeclared Peanut Protein In Cumin Products,” which has been determined to be directly related to this recall.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) have not yet received any reports of illness or reactions to consuming the products.
