More than 200 tonnes of pork recalled in the US

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) ordered the recall of approximately 515,000 pounds (233 tonnes) of raw pork meat produced by Morris Meat Packing, a Maywood, Illinois establishment. The raw, intact pork items were produced on Saturdays from November 25, 2017 to November 9, 2019, without the benefit of inspection. These items were shipped to distributors and retail locations in Illinois.

The problem was discovered when FSIS received an anonymous tip that the firm was producing products without the benefit of inspection. So far, there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ refrigerators or freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
