Fairmont Foods, Inc., of Minnesota is recalling approximately 35,145 pounds of ready-to-eat pork and beef gravy products that may be contaminated with bits of clear pliable plastic, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
These frozen items were produced on May 2, 2019:
- 45-lb. cases containing nine 5-lb plastic bags of “Popeyes LOUISIANA KITCHEN PORK TASSO AND GROUND BEEF GRAVY” with Product Code 1F0112, Use By: 050220, and a time stamp ranging from 1615 to 0022.
The products under recall bear establishment number EST. 2WM inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to Popeyes restaurant locations in Louisiana. View product labels here.
The company contacted FSIS after they received a report that a consumer found a piece of the soft pliable plastic in the product. There have been no confirmed reports of illness or injury due to consumption of these products. FSIS is concerned that some of the product may be in restaurant freezers. Restaurants are urged not to serve the product, but to throw it away or return it to the place of purchase.
