The USDA’s Food Safety & Inspection Service (FSIS) issued a public health alert in connection with an undetermined amount of meat and poultry products imported into the United States from China. FSIS cannot issue a recall because the agency was unable to identify the importer. The illegal products, discovered during a U.S. Customs and Border Protection Investigation, are ineligible for import, uninspected, and considered to be unfit for human consumption.
