Almost 30 tonnes of meat and poultry products recalled from the US market

29.5 tonnes of meat and poultry products produced by Chunwei, Inc., a Huntington Park, California establishment, were recalled from the market due to the risk that it may contain soy, wheat, dairy, egg, and sesame, known allergens, as well as monosodium glutamate (MSG), which are not declared on the finished product label, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The products were produced on various dates from Nov. 16, 2017, through Nov. 19, 2018, and were shipped to a distributor and to retail locations nationwide. The problem was discovered by FSIS Inspection Program Personnel while conducting a routine label verification task. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products, announced the federal service.

These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase. The case was flagged as a class I alert, which is considered a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.
