Imperial Sysco Pork Recall Issued Due to Metal Fragments

About 5,550 pounds of Imperial Sysco pureed pork are being recalled from store shelves after at least two people reported finding metal fragments in their food. 

The pureed pork recall was announced by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) on September 26, after the manufacturer, K. Heeps, Inc. reported the consumer complaints. There have been no reports of injury or illness related to the foreign objects found in the pork.

The FSIS suggests that the metal pieces may have broken off of the blending equipment while it was being cleaned and reassembled, somehow ending up in the meat.
