California Firm Recalls Chorizo Sausages Due to Misbranding and an Undeclared Wheat

 Silva Sausage Co., a Gilroy, Calif. establishment, is recalling approximately 2,290 pounds of a chorizo sausage product because of misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The product contains wheat, a known allergen, which is not noted on the label.

The products subject to recall include:
[View Label]:

5-lb. vacuum packs of “NETO’S MEXICAN CHORIZO 4/1.”

The product subject to recall bears the establishment number “6086” inside the USDA mark of inspection and can be further identified by the item number “18062” and lot codes “11279,” “11293,” “11304,” “11321,” “11333,” or “11341.” The product was produced between Oct. 1, 2011, and Dec. 9, 2011, and distributed for institutional use in Santa Clara, Calif.

FSIS discovered the problem during a label review at the establishment. The review revealed that cereal, which contained wheat, was used in the product

and was inadvertently left off the product labels. 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.

Consumers and media with questions about the recall should contact the company’s vice president, Rick Martins, at (408) 293-5437.

Consumers with food safety questions can "Ask Karen," the FSIS virtual representative available 24 hours a day at The toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) is available in English and Spanish and can be reached from l0 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday.

Jamie, possibly by no fault of your own, I think you missed the point of the post. I am not trying to judge what is Paleo and what isn't and I'm not trying to condemn people for eating unpaleo foods IF THEY WORK. But the fact is that Paleo treats don't work for most of us and I have been very surprised to see so many pictures and recipes of them. I do eat a little oil (although not much because I find it irritating) and I even have some skim milk sometimes (shudder), and even potatoes. So what. Whatever. What I don't do is jeopardize my health by fooling myself into believing that junk food, as long as it's called Paleo, isn't junk food. And honestly, even if you do fool yourself like that, I'm still not judging you. We're all on our own paths. But somebody's got to come out and remind people that treats are treats and they probably won't make you feel great.I'm not 100% Primal. I'm way more Primal than most, but there are a few things that I have found work alright for me beyond the usual Primal guidelines. I don't care if you're Primal or not. (Are you really Primal was probably a bad choice in titles.) Primal treats are the only issue at hand. Not dairy, not potatoes, not oils and butter, and not any other minimally processed foods. Now, we could seek to define Primal and all of the ways in which any deviance might be harmful. That would be interesting. But that's not what I was trying to do here.
