WASHINGTON, Feb. 23, 2016 – Ajinomoto Windsor Inc., a Portland, Ore. establishment, is recalling approximately 6,000 pounds of pork products due to misbranding, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The product is labeled as beef, but contains pork, which is not declared on the product label.

The pork dumpling item was produced on Dec. 6, 2015.

4-lb. plastic bag packages of “Shirakiku Gyoza Dumplings with Beef” with a best if used by date of June 6, 2017.
The product subject to recall bears establishment number “Est. 18356” inside the USDA mark of inspection. This item was shipped to institutional and retail locations nationwide.

The problem was discovered by the sole purchaser of the product.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of this product. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.

Consumers and media with questions about the recall can contact Andrew Saunders, Director of Production Control, at (503) 734-1526.
