Tennessee Firm Recalls Pork And Beef Sold to Restaurants

Antioch, TN (SafetyAlerts) - U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said that Whitts Barbecue has recalled approximately 16,000 pounds of ready-to-eat pork and beef barbecue products because of an undeclared allergen (whey).

The products being recalled are cases containing:

5-lb. packages of "Whitts BARBECUE PORK BARBECUE with SAUCE Pit Cooked Over Hickory Coals," and 5-lb. packages of "Whitts BARBECUE BEEF BARBECUE with SAUCE Pit Cooked Over Hickory Coals."
The products were produced between Jan. 2 and April 14, and each package bears a date code between "1-2" and "4-14." The packages also bear the establishment code "EST. 7302" inside the USDA seal of inspection.

The products were distributed to restaurants and delis in Tennessee.

"Diners who are allergic to whey may wish to ask if their meals contain these products," said Dr. Garry L. McKee, FSIS administrator.

The problem was discovered through routine FSIS inspection.

Consumers and media with questions about the recall may contact Tony Pigue, assistant general manager, Whitts Barbecue, at (615) 351-3407
