  • 2.2 lb. – 10 polybag pillows packed in paper cartons containing “Pork Soup with Rendered Pork Fat (from bone)” with lot code 010218-1, a product code of 61306 and a best before date of Dec. 22, 2019.

  • Colorado
  • California
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Illinois

  • Washington

The problem was discovered on January 30, 2018 by an Enforcement Investigator and Analysis Officer (EIAO) while conducting a Food Safety Assessment (FSA) at the establishment. 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. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website.

This is a Class 1 recall: “This is a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.”

Consumers and media with questions about the recall can contact Atsushi Fujimori, President, Guymon Extracts Inc., at 580.338.2624.  The toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline 1.888.MPHotline (1.888.674.6854) is available in English and Spanish and can be reached from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday.
