Ohio-based Stino Da Napoli has issued a recall of 11,392lb of various meat products that were produced, packed and distributed without federal inspection.

According to the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), the ready-to-eat meat products and meat sauce items were produced from 30 November 2017 through 20 December 2018.

The products subject to recall include 24oz (1.5lb) jars of Stino Da Napoli Gourmet Meat Sauce Bolognese with lot code 181284000013, and 24oz (1.5lb) jars of Stino Da Napoli Gourmet Pasta Sauce with Bacon Fumo Del Vesuvio with lot code 181284000303.

Also part of the recall were 1.3lb packages containing Stino’s Gourmet Italian Foods Meatball with lot code 181284000167, and 1.2lb packages containing Stino’s Gourmet Italian Foods Meat Lasagna with lot code 181284000150.

“So far, there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions as a result of consumption of these products.”

The sauce products being recalled carry establishment number EST 45779 inside the USDA mark of inspection. The meatball and lasagna products do not include the USDA mark of inspection. These items were distributed to retail stores in Ohio.

An FSIS investigator who visited a farmer’s market in Solon, Ohio, found the problem on 15 January. The investigator then observed products produced by Stino Da Napoli for sale.

So far, there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions as a result of consumption of these products.

FSIS stated that anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers have been urged not to consume the products and to either throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.

This has been classified as Class I recall, indicating a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable chance that consumption of the product would lead to serious, adverse health consequences or death.
