Various cases of goat products imported stateside from Australia have been recalled, according to the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service.
The Newark, N.J. firm Dahlia Imports, LLC noted it affects 96,624 pounds of frozen, raw, bone-in goat products that were not presented for import reinspection around April 11, 2022 and Sept. 28, 2022.
Products that have been recalled do not bear the USDA mark of inspection, with each box containing the Australia establishment seal “101.” The products were shipped to California, North Carolina, New Yok and Ohio, and were distributed to other states, including Arizona.
Affected products include:
- 35.27-lb. cases of “BONE-IN GOAT CUBED PIECES” containing 2.2-lb. plastic bags of “BONE-IN GOAT CUBES” with shipping mark WEX11734A printed on the case.
- 35.27-lb. cases of “BONE-IN GOAT SKIN-ON CUBED PIECES BROWN” containing 2.2-lb. plastic bags of “BONE-IN GOAT CUBES BROWN SKIN-ON” with shipping mark WEX11734B, WEX11734C, or WEX11734D printed on the case.
- Various weight (56-60-lb) cases of “BONE-IN GOAT ASSORTED CUTS BROWN SKIN-ON” with shipping marks WEX11734E, WEX11734F, WEX11533A, WEX11533B, WEX11533C, or WEX11533D printed on the case (no label available).
A routine FSIS surveillance of the items at retail stores revealed the issue; there have not been confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption.
Distributors and consumers who have purchased the products should not consume them, rather throw them away or return to place of purchase.
