Last Wednesday (5/14/08), a Carson, CA company called Cecina Los Amigos produced 290 pounds of pork blood sausages. Today (5/21/08), its being recalled because routine testing found it may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service says the following product is subject to recall: 10-pound vacuum-sealed packages of “CECINA LOS AMIGOS PORK BLOOD SAUSAGE (MORONGA).” The label bears the establishment number “EST. 21653” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
While the amount is small, this is a Class 1 recall with a high health risk.
