Kulana Foods recalls teri smoked pork


Kulana Foods Ltd., of Hilo, is recalling approximately 4,465 pounds of frozen, fully cooked pork products because of misbranding and an undeclared allergen.

The products are formulated with a soy sauce that contains wheat, a known allergen, which is not declared on the label.

The products subject to recall include:

Various weight (approximately .75 – .90 lb.) packages of “MOUNTAIN APPLE BRAND Teri Smoked Pork” with identifying case codes: 03414, 07214, 12814, 16914, 21114, 28114, 03713, 05113, 06513, 23313, or 34513.

5-pound packages of “MOUNTAIN APPLE BRAND Teri Smoked Pork” with identifying case code: 09214.

The products bear the establishment number “EST. 12445” inside the USDA mark of inspection on the label. The products were produced on various dates between Feb. 6, 2013 and Oct. 8, 2014 and shipped to retail locations and for foodservice use on the islands of Hawaii and Oahu.

The problem was discovered by FSIS personnel during a label review at the establishment. FSIS personnel are responsible for verifying that establishments are actively labeling the eight most common food allergens. Wheat was a sub-ingredient of soy sauce used in the product and was inadvertently left off the product label.

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 Sheryl Taka, company office manager, at 808-959-9144.

    Too many animals were slaughtered to provide that “wheat” soaked food for consumption. Not too many are allergic to wheat. My main concern is…What happens to the body parts of all those pigs that were aggressively slaughtered to feed the mouths of carniverous people now that they are being removed from market? What a waste of life energy. This is why I strongly disagree with farming animals by the masses. There lives just get wasted like a piece of tissue paper. Shame, shame, shame. Indidvidual hunting is how it should stay.
