WASHINGTON – Hilo, Hawaii-based Kulana Foods Ltd. recalled 4,465 lbs. of frozen pork products due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) reported.

FSIS personnel discovered the problem during a label review at the company. The pork products were formulated with a soy sauce that contains wheat as a sub-ingredient. Wheat is a known allergen that was inadvertently left off the product label. There have been no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the products.

• 5-lb. packages of “MOUNTAIN APPLE BRAND Teri Smoked Pork” with identifying case code: 09214.
