Additional information:Westlake Foods Cured Pork
The United States Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) reports the following Pork Products are subject to this recall:

  • 12-pound blocks of “Pate Gan Tay Ho Liverwurst Spread” distributed in cases for restaurant and wholesale use nationwide.
  • 6-pound cups of “Pate Gan Tay Ho Liverwurst Spread” distributed at retail, restaurants and wholesale locations nationwide.

Please note: similar products to the ones mentioned in this bulletin have been previously recalled by the same company. To see this earlier recall, please search for “Westlake Foods” or “Recalls Direct RIN: 2013-2440”.

About Soy Allergies
Many foods have soy-based ingredients including edamame (soybeans in pods), hydrolyzed soy protein, miso, soy protein isolate, soy sauce, tamari, tempeh, teriyaki sauce, textured vegetable protein (“TVP”) and tofu. In addition, lax labeling laws in many countries allow manufacturers to use (but not declare) small amounts of soy in “artificial flavoring”, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, vegetable broth and others. Although levels of these allergens are comparatively small, they may cause dangerous allergic reactions, including Anaphylactic Shock.

About Wheat Allergies:
For some people, wheat (and wheat products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Due to modern food manufacturing methods, wheat products may not “look” or “sound” like wheat. People with a wheat allergy would suspect products such as all breads, cakes, breakfast cereals, pasta, crackers, beer, soy sauce and even condiments, such as ketchup, as having wheat unless specifically declared otherwise. Products that are heavily processed, cured, smoked or similarly prepared may also have wheat ingredients.

Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to wheat or wheat ingredients and/or soy or soy ingredients within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death. If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call 9-1-1 or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical center. If trained and an emergency kit is available, it may be appropriate to give an injectable drug such as Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline or adrenalin) to the affected individual. Trade names of these products include EpiPen, Twinject, Adrenaclick, Anapen, Jext, Allerject and Auvi-Q. Please note: even patients who are apparently stabilized should still go to hospital for emergency evaluation. Further treatment is often necessary.

Please note: a person allergic to one type of food or other substance may also be allergic to others. Multiple undeclared allergens may compound symptoms in susceptible persons. Seek immediate medical care if you suspect you or someone else is suffering from Anaphylactic Shock.
