Famed California Vietnamese Restaurant Issues Meat Recall

LA Product LiabilityLee’s Sandwiches, a decades old institution in Northern California, has issued a recall on a number of its food products after it was determined that certain safety standards were not met and posed a significant health issue to the general public.

As initially reported by NBC 4, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) along with Lee’s main company LQNN, Inc., issued a recall on nearly a half million pounds of meats. A number of surveillance videos from Lee’s federally inspected facility in Garden Grove, CA showed that the company had not properly inspected the meat and distributed the goods without proper authorization.

The products included a wide variety of untested chicken, beef and pork items that could potentially pose a health hazard.

Some of the recalled items included:

  • Banh Bao Trung Cut Pork & Quail Egg Steamed Bun Vietnamese Style
  • Banh Bao Pork & Egg Steamed Bun
  • Pork Pate Chaud
  • Chicken Pate Chaud
  • Kho Bo

The meats in question were distributed to a number of different locations throughout Arizona, California, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon and Texas. The USDA is urging anyone who has purchased any of the aforementioned items to contact them immediately.

Bacteria found in raw meat products have the potential to cause terrible harm to individuals of any age. If you suspect you have or are experiencing food poisoning, it is important to speak with a doctor as soon as possible. Additionally, companies that supply tainted food products can be held liable for any damages they cause.
