CS Best Food Inc., a Panorama City, Calif. establishment, is recalling approximately 6,560 pounds of pork products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The product contains wheat and soy, known allergens which are not declared on the product label.

The blood sausage link products were produced between Aug. 28 and Oct. 17, 2014. The following products are subject to recall:

  • 1-lb. vacuum-packed packages containing 2 sausage link pieces of “A Pork Snout, Beef Blood, Rice & Noodle Link”.
  • 5-lb. vacuum-packed packages containing multiple sausage link pieces of “A Pork Snout, Beef Blood, Rice & Noodle Link”.

The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “EST. 40119” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These products produced were shipped to retail locations in California and Washington.                                

The problem was discovered by FSIS during a routine label review.

FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider. 

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.

Consumers and media with questions about the recall can contact Woosung America at 510-265-0808.
