WASHINGTON, D.C. — A California company is recalling approximately 30,000 pounds of imported pork products that were imported from an ineligible establishment and distributed in the United States without being inspected by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

AH Company International Distribution Inc., based in Garden Grove, is recalling the pork pâté products because they were not afforded an import re-inspected by the Food Safety and Inspection Service, the USDA said in a news release Friday.

The following heat-treated shelf stable pork pâté items are subject to recall:

  • 240-gram cans of Monique Ranou Pâté de Foie
  • 240-gram cans of Monique Ranou Pâté de Campagne
  • 180-gram jars of Monique Ranou Pâté de Campagne Supérieur

The products being recalled bear the French establishment number “FR 56-246-008 CE,” which is ineligible, the USDA said. The items were shipped to distributor locations nationwide.

The problem was discovered during routine FSIS verification activities, the USDA said in its release.

The USDA urges consumers who have purchased these products not to eat them, advising that they should either be thrown away or returned to the stores where they were bought.
