Thousands of pounds of meat products are being recalled after they were distributed without a federal inspection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced.
Stino Da Napoli is recalling approximately 11,392 pounds of various meat products that were produced, packed and distributed without the benefit of federal inspection. The ready-to-eat products and meat sauce items were produced from Nov. 30, 2017, and Dec. 20 last year.
The recalled products include:
- 24-oz (1.5-lbs.) jarred pasta sauce containing “Stino Da Napoli Gourmet Meat Sauce Bolognese” with lot code 181284000013.
- 24-oz. (1.5 lbs.) jarred pasta sauce containing “Stino Da Napoli Gourmet Pasta Sauce with Bacon Fumo Del Vesuvio” with lot code 181284000303.
- 1.3-lb. packages containing “Stino’s GOURMET ITALIAN FOODS MEATBALLS” with lot code 181284000167.
- 1.2-lb. packages containing “Stino’s GOURMET ITALIAN FOODS MEAT LASAGNA” with lot code 181284000150.
According to the FDA, the sauce products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 45779” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The meatball and lasagna products do not include the USDA mark of inspection.
The problem was first discovered in mid-January when an FSIS investigator visited a farmer’s market in Solon, Ohio and observed products produced by Stino Da Napoli being offered for sale.
There have been no reported incidents involving illnesses or adverse reactions due to the consumption of the products.
According to the FSIS, officials are “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.”
