FSIS Issues Public Health Alert Following Recall
The Food Safety and Inspection Service issued a warning after a company declined to expand its recall of egg products.
The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) issued an alert on Wednesday after a Washington company declined to expand its recall of products, according to an article from Food Safety News. The company—Nutriom LLC in Lacey, Wash.—failed to expand its mid-February recall by including an additional "118,541 pounds of processed egg products for which there is reason to conclude that they are unfit for human consumption."
FSIS requested an expansion after completing an investigation that determined the products should not be eaten by people. The agency issued the first recall because the company allegedly recorded false lab results, according to Food Safety News. The company then declined to recall the additional products FSIS determined to be unfit for human consumption.
