An Aug. 13 recall of pork products from Kapowin Meats in Graham, Washington has now been expanded due to more Salmonella contamination. Furthermore, an additional 523,380 more pounds of pork is thought to be contaminated. The recall now included a production period of April 19-2015 through August 26, 2015, which is an additional four weeks.
Now since the recall, Kapowin Meats has stepped up their sanitary efforts that were considered insufficient by USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service. When checking products for the recall, it is advised to look for the Est. 1628 stamp inside it. All of the recalled products were shipped to Alaska, Oregon, and Washington. Thus far there have been 152 confirmed cases of Salmonella poisoning, and 36 of the cases were traced back to the consumption of whole hogs for barbeques.
