Approximately 5,163 pounds of beef broth products manufactured by Cauldron Soups, LLC, doing business as Cauldron Broths, were not checked by federal inspectors and have been recalled, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The Bellingham, Washington-based company produced and packaged the beef bone broth products between Dec. 21, 2016, and May 22, 2017. The packages include the establishment number “EST. 45953” and were shipped to retail locations across Washington as well as a distributor who conducts internet sales direct to consumer nationwide.
The problem was discovered by FSIS personnel when it found a broth product had been produced without the benefit of the agency’s inspection.
The FSIS is the public health agency within the USDA. It is responsible for ensuring the wholesomeness of all meat and poultry products sold in interstate and foreign commerce, including imported products. It also makes sure the products are labeled and packaged correctly.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions or illness due to consumption of these products. Consumers should not consume the product, but it should be returned to the place of purchase or thrown away.
Consumers can contact Gabriel Claycamp, CEO, at 360-671-1098 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions about the recall.
Routine recall effectiveness checks are conducted by FSIS to verify recalling companies notify their customers that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website.
