(Before It's News)

An Iowa company is recalling almost half a ton of dried pork loin after a federal inspector noticed an “off-odor.” The dried pork was not properly dehydrated, which could lead to dangerous bacteria growth.

La Quercia of Norwalk, IA, is recalling more than 930 pounds of whole and sliced Lomo Americano products in two sizes of packages and with several different best-by dates and lot numbers. The pork loin items were produced on various dates between June 3 and Nov. 2.

“The problem was discovered when FSIS inspection personnel found off-odor Lomo Americano product at the La Quercia establishment,” according to the recall notice posted by the USDA’s Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS).

“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.”

“These items were shipped to distributors and retail locations in California, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, Texas, and Virginia. There have been no confirmed reports of illnesses due to consumption of these products.”

The recalled pork products have a long shelf life, some with best-by dates in November 2017, and officials are concerned consumers may have the potentially dangerous food in their homes.

Consumers can identify the recalled pork products by looking for the following label information:

  • 2.65-lb. vacuum-sealed package containing one piece of “LOMO AMERICANO” with a best by date of 11/08/17 and lot #Z16D04V115516.
