California Company Recalls Sausage Over Allergens

California Company Recalls Sausage Over Allergens

Lynne Terry | The Oregonian, Portland, Ore.

A California company announced today it is pulling nearly 30,000 pounds of pork sausage that could contain anchovies or sardines, potentially provoking an allergic reaction in some people.

Pampanga Food Corp, based in Anaheim, Calif., said the recall covers 10-oz. packages of its skinless cooked cured pork longanisa produced between Jan. 7 and Sept. 22. The sausages, which were mislabeled, were sold nationwide, the company said.

President Reynaldo Reyes said the company doesn’t put anchovies or sardines in the sausage but Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce is one of the ingredients and that can contain the fish.

The problem was discovered during a routine check by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which said it had received no reports of illness.

For more information, or call the company at 714-773-0537.
