An import inspector discovered the problem on Nov. 3 during routine FSIS monitoring activities of imported products, the agency said. The inspector found that three lots on one certificate had presented, inspected and passed. A fourth lot on a different certificate had not been presented and had entered the United States without inspection.
The boneless Boston Butt items were imported on Oct. 31 and include 62-lb. (approximate weight) cartons of “Pork Shoulder Blade Boneless ¼” COV 2X4,” FSIS said. The affect products bear the establishment number “007” inside Canada’s mark of inspection. The pork shoulders were shipped to retail locations in California, FSIS said.
