The USDA says a Louisiana company is recalling products that they say may contain meat that was not inspected.

The products come from A La Carte Foods Properties, LLC in Belle Rose. The company is recalling around 30,000 pounds of meat and poultry products which were not federally inspected.

The problem was discovered when A La Carte Foods Properties, LLC personnel notified FSIS on Oct. 11, 2018, that they used meat products from a source that was not federally-inspected to formulate their federally inspected ready-to-eat products.

The ready-to-eat frozen meat and poultry sausage items were produced on various dates from Jan. 3, 2017 through Oct. 2, 2018.

The following products are subject to recall:

Officials say the products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 13375” or “P-13375” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to restaurant locations in Louisiana and Texas.
