Recalled Longanisa Sausage in Hawaii
Pampanga Food Corporation, an Anaheim, Calif., establishment, is recalling approximately 28,470 pounds of a frozen skinless sausage cooked cured pork longanisa product because it was inadvertently packaged with an incorrect label and may contain undeclared allergens, anchovies and/or sardines, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today. Anchovies and sardines are known potential allergens that are not declared on the label.
The Hawaii State Department of Health (DOH) is urging consumers to check their freezers for recalled 10-ounce frozen packages of “PAMPANGA Skinless Sausage COOKED CURED PORK LONGANISA.” The front of each label bears a package code ranging from “03043” to “03790,” as well as the establishment number “EST. 405” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The sausage products were produced on various dates ranging from January 7, 2009 to September 22, 2009, and were distributed to retail stores nationwide including Hawaii.Â Local distributors have been notified by the company, and the DOH will be conducting checks at the retail level on Monday to ensure the product has been removed from sale.Â There has been no reported illness due to consumption of the product.
