Lack of Proper Inspection Prompts Urgent Pork Recall

— October 18, 2021

The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is recalling thousands of pounds of pork products that did not undergo a proper safety inspection.

If you’re a fan of pork, listen up. Earlier this week, the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) team of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued a recall for more than “10,000 pounds of pork pellet products from Evans Food Group.” Why? Well, it turns out the recalled pork products failed to undergo a proper inspection when they arrived in the U.S. Fortunately, there have been no reports of consumers experiencing adverse reactions from the pork.

  • Mac’s 30z Original Pork skin
