DETROIT, Texas — The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned consumers Aug. 13 of an expanded recall of Texas Tripe Inc. products, now including 23 products and affecting 35 lots of each recalled product. The products were distributed direct-to-consumer across 24 states.
The manufacturer, based in northern Texas, was subject to testing by the Office of the Texas State Chemist, which found 16 of 23 samples taken tested positive for Salmonella or Listeria monocytogenes. After Texas Tripe had "performed corrective actions," the FDA followed up with an additional inspection and found some products were still contaminated with Salmonella or Listeria, including the manufacturer's chicken blend, lot 19196-6; pork blend, lot 19190-09; and beef blend, lot 19191-05.
A comprehensive list of recalled products and lot numbers of those products can be found in the FDA's official statement.
Texas Tripe said all recalled products were sold in cases of 20 or 40 lbs.
On August 3, Texas Tripe initially recalled 26 lots of various products, distributed direct-to-consumer between May 28 and July 1, 2019, for potential Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
