The USDA has some fairly strict rules concerning the import of different food products, such as meat, and review is often required in order to ensure food security guidelines are met.
In some new recalls, the USDA shows that some beef and pork products never received the inspection they needed, and so the product is not cleared to be marketed to consumers.
The products include beef tallow out of China and pork pâté that originated in France.
A lot of the food sold and consumed in the United States is grown right here in the country. The US does a fair bit of importing and exporting of different food products, and when food comes into the United States from another country it’s always subject to inspection. Typically, these reviews go off without a hitch and the consumer never has to worry about it, but every once in a while a product is going to end up skipping inspection for one motive or another, and when that happens, it usually causes a recall.
In some new recall bulletins posted by the USDA, pork and beef products imported from France and China respectively are presently being recalled because the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service never got a chance to inspect them. The recalls include almost 100,000 pounds of beef tallow products from China, that was never assumed to be erased in the first place, as well as over 30,000 lbs of pork pâté that originated in France.
The China beef tallow remember is the more serious of the two for a couple reasons. Obviously, the very fact that it was never scrutinized is a large red flag, but there is also the issue of it being a beef merchandise from China. Regulations are now in place to prevent the importing of beef products from China, so the beef tallow must not have made it to U.S. shores in the first location. It is unclear why this happened, or when the firm that imported it GLG Trading Inc. — was knowingly importing a banned product, but now that it’s here it has to be disposed of.
The following products that comprised the beef tallow are part of the recall:
17.6-ounce. Vacuum-sealed packages of”Ming Yang Hotpot Seasoning (Slightly spicy).”
17.6-oz. Vacuum-sealed packages of”Ming Yang Hotpot Seasoning (Super spicy, Extremely).”
12. 07-oz. vacuumed sealed packages of “Ming Yang Hotpot Seasoning (Medium spicy, Mala).”
They were offered to distributors and merchants in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, New York, and Texas.

240-g cans of Monique Ranou Pâté de Foie
