With Chorizo From Mexico
Laredo, TX (SafetyAlerts)
- U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said
that Vilore Foods Co. has recalled an undetermined amount of canned refried
beans with chorizo sausage that are improperly labeled as a meat product. The refried beans do not contain 3 percent meat, which is
required for a product to be labeled as a meat product.
The products being recalled are 15.2 oz. cans of "La Sierra Authentica
Cocina Mexicana REFRIED BEANS with Chorizo." The products were distributed
to retail stores nationwide.
"These products are mislabeled," said Dr. Garry L. McKee, FSIS
administrator. "Consumers who have concerns about this product should return
it to the point of purchase."
FSIS has received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of
this product. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a physician.
Consumers and media with questions about the recall may contact Jose Luis
Murillo, Jr., operations manager, at (956) 726-3633.
