WASHINGTON, Dec. 19, 2020 – Perfect Pasta Inc., an Addison, Ill. establishment, is recalling an undetermined amount of heat treated not shelf stable frozen meat and poultry products that were produced without the benefit of federal inspection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
The recall is considered a class I recall. This is a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.
The various packages of frozen meat and poultry products were produced between December 2018 and December 2020 and bear an establishment number “Est. 19829/P-19829” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
All products subject to the recall can be found in the following list. These items were distributed and sold nationwide.recall-product-list-029-2020
The problem was discovered when an FSIS investigation determined the firm was re-portioning and repackaging amenable products in a secondary location without the benefit of federal inspection. The repackaging facility does operate under the USDA Grant of Inspection for Est.19829/P-19829.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
