Olymel is recalling approximately 1,124 pounds of pork ribs products because the products were repacked and distributed without the benefit of federal inspection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced recently.

The pork ribs items were repacked and produced from January 10 to January 13, 2017.

The following products are subject to recall:

  • 10-lb. cardboard box of pork rib tips with a packaging date of January 10-13, 2017.
  • 30-lb. cardboard box of pork rib tips with a packaging date of January 10-13, 2017.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number Est. 8951 inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to restaurants in Michigan.

The problem was discovered on January 13, 2017 by FSIS while conducting routine failure to present monitoring activities. FSIS discovered that a shipment of pork spare ribs entered the United States from Canada on or about 1/08/2017, crossing the border in Michigan. The products were then processed and repacked at a federal establishment and further distributed.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products, to date. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. Instead, these products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

Consumers with any additional questions or concerns about the recall can contact Richard Vigneault, Public Relations Agent, at (514) 497-1385.
