Pennsylvania company recalls pureed pork products

WASHINGTON – Federal authorities say an eastern Pennsylvania company is recalling about 5,550 pounds of pureed pork products that may contain foreign materials.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said Monday that the recall by K. Heeps Inc. of Allentown is for 4.5 pound boxes of Imperial Sysco "Puree Shaped Meats Country Style Pork and Binder Product."

The boxes have the mark "EST. 9379" inside the USDA inspection mark. They were produced on June 16 and shipped to California, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, New Jersey, Ohio, Texas, Utah and Virginia as well as Pennsylvania for institutional use.

The department said two consumers reported finding small metal fragments in the products that may have come from blending equipment at the plant. There have been no reports of injuries.
