(WTXL) - Fully cooked pork products distributed in Florida, Georgia and five other states are being recalled by Guymon Extracts because of concerns about food poisoning.

Guymon Extracts is recalling about 4,202 pounds of products due to a processing deviation. That deviation may have allowed the growth of spores that cause botulism, which can lead to difficulty breathing, paralysis and death. 

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the recall Tuesday.

The following products are subject to recall:

2.2 lb. - 10 polybag pillows packed in paper cartons containing “Pork Soup with Rendered Pork Fat (from bone)” with lot code 010218-1, a product code of 61306 and a best before date of Dec. 22, 2019.

The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “Est. 32161” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were sent to distribution centers and were further distributed in California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Texas and Washington.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Atsushi Fujimori, president, Guymon Extracts, at (580) 338-2624.
