Lao Chareune Foods, a Dallas, Texas establishment, is recalling approximately 8,200 pounds of various beef and pork products. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced that these products have been produced without the benefit of federal inspection and misbranded; thus, being recalled.

The following products are subject to recall:

  • 3-oz. and 8-oz. packages containing “Pork Snack Stick”
  • 3.20-oz. packages containing “Seasoned Fried Beef”
  • 1.76-oz. packages containing “Fried Pork Skins”
  • 1.20-oz. packages containing “Sliced Fried Pork Ears.”

Each package is marked with the establishment number “EST. 13479” inside the USDA mark of inspection. Note: there are no production or expiration dates on the products in commerce. The pork snack stick is also misbranded in that it is raw and as such cannot be labeled as a snack stick.

FSIS has determined that the products were produced from May 22,2010 to the present and distributed to retail establishments in Louisiana and Texas.

Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a health care provider. Consumers with food safety questions can “Ask Karen,” the FSIS virtual representative available 24 hours a day at
