South Carolina Firm Has Recalled Pork

Conway, SC (SafetyAlerts) - United States Department of Agriculture, Food Safety and Inspection Service, (FSIS) said that Radd Dew's Bar-B-Q Pit has recalled approximately 7,000 pounds of barbecue pork because it contains an undeclared allergen (anchovies).

Anchovies are a known allergen. Persons who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to anchovies (a type of fish) run the risk of possible allergic reactions if they consume this product.

The products being recalled are:

1-pound tubs of "Radd Dew's ELECTRIC PIT COOKED PORK BARBECUE WITH BARBECUE SAUCE," distributed to retail stores in North Carolina and South Carolina.

10-pound tubs of "RADD DEW'S ELECTRIC Pit Cooked Pork Barbecue WITH BARBECUE SAUCE," distributed to wholesale establishments in North Carolina and South Carolina.

Each package label bears an establishment code "EST. 9088" inside the USDA seal of inspection.

?FSIS wants consumers who are sensitive to anchovies to be aware of the recall,? said William J. Hudnall, acting FSIS administrator. ?Consumers who are allergic to anchovies should not eat this product but return it to the point of purchase."

The problem was discovered by an FSIS inspector.

Consumers and media with questions about the recall may contact Jim Dew, owner, Radd Dew's Bar-B-Q Pit, at (843) 397-7453.
