WASHINGTON – The US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced May 1 that Hempstead, NY-based Hempstead Foodservice is recalling approximately 972 lbs of pork chop products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens. The product contains hydrolyzed soy protein, which is not declared on the product label. The problem was discovered through routine FSIS verification activities.
The heat-treated fresh pork chop items were produced on various dates between April 6, 2021, and April 30, 2021. The products bear establishment number “EST. 47142” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The following products are subject to recall:
- 10- to 41-lb cardboard boxes containing the product in clear plastic bags with “Hempstead Foodservice” on the box and “PORK CHOPS” marked from the list on the side of the box.
These items were shipped to grocery stores and restaurants in New York. The products are then cooked at these retailers and then sold to consumers.
