WASHINGTON, August 24, 2019– Olympia Meats, a Portland, Ore., establishment is recalling approximately 198 pounds of ready-to-eat (RTE) pork sausage products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The product contains pistachios (tree nuts), a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.
The RTE pork sausage products are labeled as “Mortadella Classica” products but contain Mortadella Pistachio sausage products. The items were produced on July 29, 2019.
The following products are subject to recall:
Varying weights of vacuum packed “OLYMPIA PROVISIONS MORTADELLA CLASSICA WITH GARLIC AND SPICES” with a best by date of l2-30-2019.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “Est. 39928” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in California, Oregon, and Washington.           
The problem was discovered after the firm received a complaint from a retail customer.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider. 
FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ refrigerators or 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.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify that recalling firms are notifying their customers of the recall and that actions are being taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
