WASHINGTON, DC – An Iowa company is recalling roughly 231 pounds of chicken, pork, and beef products that were produced without federal inspection.
The U.S. Department of Food Safety and Inspection Service says the ready-to-eat items were made between November 2 and November 6 by Pride of Iowa Sandwiches, which is based in Marengo.
The following products have been recalled:
