6.7 tons of pork products taken off the market due to metal contamination

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) said the raw pork patty items were produced on October 26, 2018.

The problem was discovered, and FSIS was notified, on Nov. 2, 2018 when the firm received a consumer complaint from a school that received the product. While the product was distributed to schools, it resulted from a commercial sale and was not part of food provided by the USDA for the National School Lunch Program.

The products recalled are 10-lb cardboard boxes containing 54-3 oz pieces of “PORK PATTIES FOR INSTITUTIONAL USE ONLY” bearing the Ganaderos Borges, Inc logo and stamped with a production date of “26 OCT 2018” and an expiration date of “16/11/18.”
