The Cure House of Louisville, Ky. is recalling an undetermined amount of cured pork products that were produced without the benefit of federal inspection, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. Consumers who have purchased this product should not eat it.
The recalled cured ham items were produced from 2009 thru Dec. 19, 2015. They were sold in various weights, individually wrapped labelled “Woodland’s Pork Mountain Ham.” The code “Est. 44888” inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were shipped to distributors in Kentucky and New Jersey.
The problem was discovered when the State of Kentucky’s Food Safety Branch alerted FSIS to an operation receiving federally inspected not-ready-to-eat (NRTE) hams and further processing these hams without the benefit of FSIS inspection. At the time of the recall, there had been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
