Kalle USA, a Chicago, Ill., establishment, is recalling approximately 168,473 pounds of pork products that were not presented at the U.S. point of entry for inspection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. Without the benefit of full inspection, a possibility of adverse health consequences exists.

The problem was discovered using the Public Health Information System (PHIS) during a routine review of import shipment data. It was found that the product failed to present at a Chicago, Ill. point of entry for FSIS re-inspection.
FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
