Pork Soup Is Being Recalled For Possible Clostridium Botulinum and Perfringens Contamination

Guymon Extracts, of Oklahoma, is recalling about 4,202 pounds of fully cooked pork soup. A processing deviation occurred that may have allowed the growth of Clostridium botulinum and Clostridium perfringens bacteria. These bacteria produce spores that produce toxins. The Clostridium botulinum spores produce botulism toxin, which can be deadly, and the Clostridium perfringens bacteria produce spores in the intestines that cause illness. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this issue.

The products were produced and packaged on January 3, 2018. The recalled product is 2.2 pound – 10 poly bag pillows packed in paper cartons containing “Pork Soup with Rendered Pork Fat (from bone)” with lot code 010218-1, product code 61306, and a best before date of Dec. 22, 2019. This product has the establishment number “Est. 32161” inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were sent to distribution centers and were further distributed in California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Texas and Washington.

The problem was discovered on January 30, 2018 by an Enforcement Investigator and Analysis Officer while conducting a Food Safety Assessment at the establishment. Low acid canned goods that are not properly processed present a risk of botulism poisoning.

If you bought this product, do not eat it, even if you are going to thoroughly reheat it. Throw it away in a secure garbage can in a sealed container, or take it back to the store where you bought it for a full refund.

The symptoms of botulism food poisoning progress downward from the eyes and face. They include double vision, drooping eyelids, difficulty swallowing, dry mouth, slurred speech, dizziness, and fatigue.
