WASHINGTON, DC – The US Dept. of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is recalling approximately 46,612 lbs. of pork and sauce products from Carrollton, Ga.-based Walker’s Foods due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen. The products contain soy, which is not declared on the product label.

The products subject to recall were produced between May 1, 2014, and May 7, 2015.

• 38,462.5 lbs. (in 5-lb. tubs) of "WALKER'S PIT COOKED BARBEQUED PORK WITH SAUCE" bearing packing codes "50115 to 50716."
• 8,150 lbs. (in 24-oz. tubs) of "WALKER'S PIT COOKED BARBEQUED PORK WITH SAUCE" bearing packing codes "50115 to 50716."

The products bear the establishment numbers "EST. 9062" inside the USDA mark of inspection. The items were shipped for institutional distribution and to retail stores in Alabama and Georgia. The problem was discovered by an FSIS inspector while conducting a routine verification check.

There have been no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
