A Portland-based maker of Eastern European-style ravioli called pelmeni is recalling nearly 170,000 pounds of uninspected meat ravioli.
The Siberoni products were distributed in Oregon and Washington.
The recall was announced Tuesday by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.
Products subject to recall were 1 lb. packages, in 40 pound cases, of Siberoni brand chicken, beef and beef and pork pelmeni,
The USDA identified the specific products:
"All these products bear the establishment number 33788 or P-33788 inside a USDA mark of inspection or elsewhere on the package. The products were produced prior to September 6, 2013 and were sold directly from the firm’s storefront and, via a distributor, to retail outlets in Oregon and Washington State."
The issue with the products was discovered by a government inspector at a distributor. The products, he found, were produced while the company was under suspension and products were not USDA inspected.
No illnesses have been associated with consumption of the uninspected products, the government said.Consumers with questions regarding the recall should contact Siberoni at 503-335-5843 or visit the firm’s website at www.siberoni.com
