Kapowsin Meats recalls pork from Washington, Oregon, Alaska
VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) — Graham-based Kapowsin Meats is recalling more than 520,000 pounds of pork shipped to Washington, Oregon and Alaska after food inspectors found that it may be contaminated with salmonella.
The Columbian reports that the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced the recall after sampling at Kapowsin Meat’s facility. Salmonella was found in whole hogs for barbecue, associated pork produces and around the business. The company has voluntarily suspended work.
The pork was produced between April 18 and Aug. 26. The recalled products include boxed or bags whole hogs for barbecue, various pork offal products, pork blood and pork trim.
The state Department of Health notified the USDA of salmonella-related illnesses in July. Those illnesses were linked to pork from Kapowsin.
