WASHINGTON – Alberta, Canada-based Olymel SEC/LP launched a recall of approximately 4,618 lbs. of raw intact pork products because the products were imported from Canada and not presented for import re-inspection upon entry into the US, the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the US Dept. of Agriculture reported.

 

These items were shipped to retail and restaurant locations in Oregon and Washington and exported to a Dept. of Defense Commissary in Japan. The problem was discovered on Feb. 5, 2018, by an FSIS import inspector.
