WASHINGTON-The US Dept. of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced on Nov. 6 that Naguabo, Puerto Rico-based Ganaderos Borges recalled approximately 14,760 lbs. of pork patty products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically metal.

The raw pork patty items were produced on Oct. 26, 2018.

The FSIS was notified when the problem was discovered on Nov. 2, 2018 after the firm received a consumer complaint from a school that received the product. While the product was distributed to schools, it resulted from a commercial sale and was not part of food provided by the USDA for the National School Lunch Program.

The following products are subject to recall: 

  • 10-lb. cardboard boxes containing 54-3 oz. pieces of “PORK PATTIES FOR INSTITUTIONAL USE ONLY” bearing the Ganaderos Borges, Inc. logo and stamped with a production date of “26 OCT 2018” and an expiration date of “16/11/18.”

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. M32170” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to institutional locations in Puerto Rico.
