If you like to eat Lee Sandwiches, you may want to read on. Furthermore, Lee’s is a fast food chain that has 48 locations throughout California, and shops in six other states. Lee’s specializes in Vietnamese foods and is recalling their meat after a federal inspection. Likewise, the USDA has placed the meat recall in Class One, meaning it has a high health risk to the public.
The recall started with 213,000 pounds of meat being recalled in San Jose without the USDA mark of inspection. Included in the recall were pork, chicken and beef products and all were packaged without USDA inspection. Instead, Lee’s Sandwiches used another facility's stamp of inspection to the items even though they were not approved by the USDA. The items recalled were produced from May last year through Tuesday of last week.
Customers are now worried about food poisoning after hearing about the recall. Thus far, there have been no reports of illnesses related to the recall. In 2013, Lee’s recalled 740 pounds of sausages due to them containing toxins that could lead to food poisoning.
