USDA recall review shows some meat was left off original list

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has found HF Food Distributors in Orocovis, Puerto Rico, failed to list all implicated products in a recent recall notice.

Consequently the company is recalling additional sliced cooked ham products that were produced without the benefit of federal inspection.

The additional product recall was triggered by a recall effectiveness check in which 15,315 pounds of various raw, frozen beef, pork and poultry products were produced by Supermercado Selectos, a San Sebastián, Puerto Rico firm, without the benefit of federal inspection.

The recalled ready-to-eat sliced cooked ham products were produced and packed on April 21, 2018.

The products do not bear an establishment number, mark of inspection, or an ingredients statement, and can identified by the following information:

  • 1-lb. plastic-wrapped packages of “JAMON COCIDO REBANADO”, with a sell by date of “May 25, 00” on the label.

HF Food Distributors shipped the items wholesale to Head Start centers in Puerto Rico. USDA provides reimbursement for meals served in Head Start through the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP); however, these products were purchased commercially. These meat and poultry products were not provided or purchased by USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a healthcare provider.

FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and 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.

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.
