The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is issuing a public health alert for rendered pork fat products that were produced without federal inspection.

FSIS was notified by the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets that the rendered pork fat products were produced and shipped into commerce without the benefit of FSIS inspection.  These products are misbranded due to the unauthorized use of the marks of federal inspection.

A recall was not requested because the products are no longer available for purchase. However, FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ refrigerators or pantries. 

The rendered pork fat items were produced on various dates from Nov. 26, 2021, to April 29, 2022 and were shipped to a warehouse distributor in Bronx, NY.

Products are subject to the public health alert:

  • 1.8-lb. plastic containers of “MANTECA RENDERED PORK FAT DON PANCHITO”
  • The products bear establishment number “EST. 19900” inside the USDA mark of inspection. 

As of the posting of this recall, there have been no confirmed reports of illness or adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. 

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.
