Taylor Farms Pork Carnitas Recalled for Listeria and Salmonella

Taylor Farms Northwest is recalling 276 pounds of ready-to-eat pork carnitas bowls because they contain tomatillos that may be contaminated with Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes bacteria.  No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this issue.

These products were produced between October 10 and 14, 2018. They include 11-ounce clear plastic wrapped bowls of “PORK CARNITAS BOWL” with a sell by dates of 10/15/18 through 10/19/18. They have the establishment number “EST. 34834” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The pork carnitas bowls were shipped to retail outlets in Oregon and Washington state.

The problem was discovered on October 15, 2018 when Taylor Farms Northwest was notified that the fire-roasted diced tomatillos used in the product were recalled by the supplier for Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella contamination.
