Crackling Pork Recalled Due To Salmonella Contamination

When we first heard there was something going on with fully cooked crackling pork, we thought that it must have something to do with the Farm Bill.   But, no, it seems it’s about a small recall of 1,100 pounds of crackling pork.

The U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service said the pork was produced on 5/12/08 by Miami-based Sofia Chicharones Inc. and it may be contaminated with Salmonella.

It’s packaged in one and five pound bags as "Fully Cooked Pork Cracklings with Attached Skin."
Each package has an "EST 21055" marking and  a packed date of  051208-1.

The fully cooked pork crackling was sold in the company’s Miami store on the same date it was made.

FSIS officials say anyone who bought the Salmonella-tainted pork should get rid of it.
