The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 2390” or “P-2390” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail and restaurant locations in Florida.

The problem was discovered during FSIS surveillance activities, which determined that the firm repackaged the beef and chicken patty products without the benefit of federal inspection and used the mark of inspection from another establishment without authorization.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.

FSIS is concerned that some product may be in restaurant and consumers’ freezers. Restaurants that have purchased these products should not serve them. 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 recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are 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.

Consumers and members of the media with questions about the recall can contact Lance Williams, Owner, Jamaican Tastee Patties, LLC, at (305) 878-2716 or [email protected].
