The Cure House, a Louisville, Ky. establishment, is recalling an undetermined amount of cured pork 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 cured ham items were produced from 2009 thru Dec. 19, 2015. The following products are subject to recall:
Various weights of individually wrapped “Woodland’s Pork Mountain Ham” products with no label.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “Est. 44888” inside the USDA mark of inspection; however, this firm was not issued a USDA grant of inspection by FSIS. These items were shipped to distributors in Kentucky and New Jersey.
The problem was discovered when FSIS was alerted by the State of Kentucky, Food Safety Branch, of an operation receiving federally inspected not-ready-to-eat (NRTE) hams and further processing these hams without the benefit of FSIS inspection. A subsequent Office of Investigation, Enforcement, and Audit (OIEA) investigation confirmed the allegation on Dec. 17, 2015.
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.
Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Jay Denham, Operator, at (502) 235-3792.
