Put Down the Chicharrone

Product sold throughout California

Pork skin food products made by a Salinas company are being  recalled because they were prepared without the benefit of federal inspection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced.
Chicharrones, products made by Camacho's Food Processing in Salinas, are being recalled because there is a reasonable probability that they can cause serious health consequences or death, according to the food  safety and inspection service of the Department of Agriculture.

About 1,450 pounds of the ready-to-eat fried pork skins are being recalled. They are in 10-pound, plastic-lined bags of "Camacho's Foods PS., URUAPAN, CHICHARRONES, (FRYED PORK SKIN)," according to the Department of  Agriculture.

The products were produced between June 16 and July 29 and were repackaged for sale to consumers and distributed to retail stores in California.

The department has not received any reports of illness due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about such an illness should  contact a physician, according to the department.

Consumers with questions can contact Oscar Camacho, the manager of the company, at 415-716-4128.
