Louisburg firm recalls pork BBQ

Posted February 5, 2010 2:39 p.m. EST

— A Louisburg company has recalled about 2,850 pounds of pork barbecue products because they may contain soy flour, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Friday.

Soy flour is a known potential allergen, and it isn't listed on the product label.

USDA inspectors discovered the problem during a routine review of operations at The Murphy House. There have been no reports of adverse reactions among people who have eaten the barbecue products.

The products subject to recall include 5-pound buckets of “The Murphy House Premium Pork Barbecue; Cooked, Unskinned Pork with Barbecue Sauce Added.” Each package bears the establishment number “EST. 2135” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The products were sent to distributors and restaurants in North Carolina, officials said.

Questions about the recall should be directed to company Vice President Josh Whitely at 919-496-6054.
