Sunrise Poultry Processors, an Alberta, Canada, establishment, is recalling approximately 2,705 pounds of poultry 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 poultry items were produced on February 2, 2015. The following products are subject to recall:
- 40 lb. bulk cases of “Sunrise Poultry CHICKEN THIGHS.”
- 25 lb. cases of “Sunrise Poultry CHICKEN THIGHS BONELESS.”
- 25 lb. cases of “Sunrise Poultry BONELESS CHICKEN BREAST.”
- 2.5 lb. cases of “Sunrise Poultry CHICKEN WHOLE FRYER.”
- 4lb. cases of “Sunrise Poultry CHICKEN WHOLE FRYER.”
- 3.25- 3.75 lb. cases of “Sunrise Poultry CHICKEN WHOLE FRYER.”
The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “Canada 591”. These products were shipped to retail locations in Washington.
The problem was discovered when the import facility reported to FSIS that product with an estimated date of arrival of February 4, 2015 had not been received at that location.
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.
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. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
