Perfect Pasta Inc. is recalling an undetermined amount of heat-treated, not shelf-stable frozen meat and poultry products that were produced without the benefit of federal inspection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Saturday.
The various packages of frozen meat and poultry products were produced between December 2018 and December 2020 and bear an establishment number “Est. 19829/P-19829” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
All products subject to the recall can be found on the following [Recall Products List (PDF only)].
Officials said although these items were distributed and sold nationwide, it is not clear if any of them made it to the tri-state area.
The problem was discovered when an FSIS investigation determined the firm was reportioning and repackaging amenable products in a secondary location without the benefit of federal inspection.
The repackaging facility does operate under the USDA Grant of Inspection for Est.19829/P-19829.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
