SP Wholesale Meats Recalls Sausage Products Due To Misbranding and an Undeclared Allergen

SP Wholesale Meats, a Portland, Ore., establishment, is recalling approximately 1,729 pounds of raw pork and chicken sausage products due to 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 declared on the product label.

Don Filipe Green ChorizoThe following products are subject to recall:

  • 10-pound boxes with 4 oz. and 2 oz. links of CASCADE FARMS “Chicken Apple Sausage” with a lot number of 079.
  • 1-pound packages with 4 oz. links and bulk of DON FELIPE’S TOLUCAN BRAND “Chorizo Verde” with a lot number of 084, 097, 104, 111, 113 and 118.
  • 1-pound packages with 4 oz. links and bulk of DON FELIPE’S TOLUCAN BRAND “Chorizo Rojo” with a lot number of 104, 111, 113 and 118.
  • 1-pound packages with 4 oz. links and bulk of DON FELIPE’S TOLUCAN BRAND “Chicken Chorizo” with a lot number of 079, 098, 112 and 119.

The products bear the establishment numbers “EST. P-2886” and “EST. 2886” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to restaurants in Oregon and Washington.

The problem was discovered when SP Wholesale Meats received an e-mail notice of an FDA recall involving Oregon Spice Co. due to the presence of wheat/gluten. The oregano was recalled due to the presence of wheat that was formulated into the sausage products.

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 can contact Charlie Ryan, President, or Jim Register, General Manager, at 503-234-0579.

That is very helpful. Thank you so much.

I would read it as ?high?. In any case, you were positive on the TTG and the DGP. You only need one positive. I had pretty severe intestinal damage and never even had a positive on the EMA or the TTG even when they were re-run several times during follow-up visits.

Thank you! That does help. I was just confused about the ?negative? under the EMA Titer when my level says ?1:40 high?. Any insight there? Just wondering if it?s further confirming or denying? I first thought confirming.
