California Firm Recalls Cooked Shredded Pork Skin Products Produced Without Inspection

From USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service, 09/1/10

Trinh Company, a San Jose, Calif., establishment, is recalling approximately 2,070 pounds of cooked shredded pork skin products because the products were produced without the benefit of federal inspection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The following products are subject to recall:

  • 8-ounce clear plastic bags of "TRINH CO. BI TUOI COOKED SHREDDED PORK SKIN, THUONG HANG BI TUOI V.N. HOP VE SINH."
  • 10-ounce clear plastic bags of "TRINH CO. BI TUOI COOKED SHREDDED PORK SKIN, THUONG HANG BI TUOI V.N. HOP VE SINH."
  • 5-pound clear plastic bags of "TRINH CO. BI TUOI COOKED SHREDDED PORK SKIN, THUONG HANG BI TUOI V.N. HOP VE SINH."

The pork products were distributed to retail establishments in California. Each bag bears the establishment number "6488" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The problem was discovered by FSIS personnel and is the subject of an ongoing investigation. FSIS may take more regulatory action based on the results of this investigation.

FSIS has received no reports of illness due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a health care provider.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. If available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/
FSIS_Recalls/Open_Federal_Cases/index.asp.

Consumer and media questions regarding the recall should be directed to the company owner, Jenny Ma, at (408) 728-0977.

Consumers with food safety questions can "Ask Karen," the FSIS virtual representative available 24 hours a day at www.AskKaren.gov. The toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) is available in English and Spanish and can be reached from l0 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday.
