The company’s pork recall has been extended beyond the whole hog recall earlier in the month.
VANCOUVER, Wash. — Graham-based Kapowsin Meats has extended its recall to include more than 520,000 pounds of pork shipped to Washington, Oregon and Alaska after food inspectors found that it may be contaminated with salmonella.
The Columbian reports that the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced the recall after sampling at Kapowsin Meat’s facility. Salmonella was found in whole hogs for barbecue, associated pork produces and around the business. The company has voluntarily suspended work.
The pork was produced between April 18 and Aug. 26. The recalled products include boxed or bags whole hogs for barbecue, various pork offal products, pork blood and pork trim.
Two weeks ago Kapowsin recalled more than 116,000 pounds of whole hogs used for barbecues.
