 Epic brand Traditional Duck Fat
Approximately 325,000 lbs. of product may be affected.
WASHINGTON – Montgomery City, Missouri-based Supreme Cuisine launched a recall of 325,000 lbs. of Epic brand meat and poultry fat and lard products due to a processing deviation that could lead to the survival of bacterial pathogens in the products, the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the US Dept. of Agriculture reported.

Supreme Cuisine discovered the problem after a customer who purchased product online complained of a loose lid. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the affected products, FSIS said.

The Epic duck, beef and pork fat and lard items were produced and packaged from June 1, 2016 through May 8, 2017. The products have a one-year shelf life. A list of the products can be found on the FSIS website.

The fat and lard products bear establishment number “EST. 34595” or “P-34595” inside the USDA mark of inspection, FSIS said. The items were sold through the internet and shipped to retail locations nationwide. Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Epic Consumer Relations at (844) 370-1971.

When are the meat fat and/or lard products expected to be available again?

Is this why it's "sold out"? I couldn't find it in its usual location at Sprouts, and it looks like it's currently out of stock on all the online stores.
