Last week, the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced a recall of thousands of pounds of pork products possibly contaminated with metal fragments. Two customers reported finding small metal pieces in puréed pork products sold by K. Heeps, Inc., in Allentown, PA. Manufactured last June, the 5,550 pounds of product were shipped to a dozen states for use in institutions. Officials suspect that pieces of the blending equipment may have broken off during a routine cleanup and reassembly. Currently, no illness or injuries from the products have been reported.
