USDA Issues Public Health Alert for Chicken and Pork Products That Were Not Inspected

The USDA is issuing a public health alert because some chicken and pork products were produced and distributed without being inspected. Pigeon Caterers, doing business as Carnival Brands in New Orleans, LA, produced and distributed about 140 pounds of this product. No illnesses or adverse reactions have been reported in connection with this issue.

A possibility of adverse health consequences exists when foods are made without USDA inspection. A recall was not requested because officials think that the products are no longer in commerce and are past their best by or enjoy by dates.

The product is in 6 ounce plastic containers containing “CAJUN MAC” with “ENJOY BY” dates of May 17, 2017 through January 20, 2018. This product was produced and packaged on dates ranging from May 12, 2017 to January 15, 2018. The product does not have the USDA mark of inspection. They were shipped to a hotel called Moxy Hotel in New Orleans. No photo of this product or the product label was provided by the USDA.

The problem was discovered by FSIS inspection personnel during a review of records at the establishment in question. Anyone who is concerned about an illness or adverse reaction if they ate this product should contact a doctor or other healthcare provider.

If you purchased this product and have it in your home or freezer, do not eat it. Throw it away in a sealed or double bagged package, so other people or animals can’t eat it, or take it back to the store where you bought it for a full refund.
