The Texas Department of State Health Services announced a recall of dried Chorizo manufactured by Houston meat company, Los Corrales, covering product produced since January 2009. The reason? Los Corrales has not been documenting that the Chorizo was properly cooked.
The Texas Department of State Health Services believes the recalled product was distributed to stores in Dallas, Houston and parts of East Texas. The dried chorizo is sold in retail stores in 4-ounce clear plastic packages labeled with the company name. The recall volume is unclear at this time.
DSHS discovered the documentation error during a routine inspection of the facility. Improperly cooked meat products can cause foodborne illness in humans. DSHS is not aware of any illnesses associated with the recalled product.
Consumers who have the product should not eat it and should destroy it.
