An Oregon company recalls nearly 200 pounds of pork sausage because it contains pistachio, which is nuts that are not declared on the label, as required by federal law.
Olympia Meats of Portland, OR delivered the product to retail outlets in California, Oregon and Washington, according to a recall notice published by the USDA's Food and Safety Administration (FSIS).
'FSIS is worried that a product may be in consumers' refrigerators or freezers. Consumers who purchased these products are urged not to consume them.
Ready-to-eat pork sausage products are labeled "Mortadella Classica" but contain Mortadella Pistachio sausage products. The called sausage was produced on July 29th.
In order to determine whether they have any of the sausages in their homes or stores, consumers and retailers should look for the following label information:
- Different weights of the vacuum package "OLYMPIA PROVISIONS MORTADELLA CLASSIC WITH GARLIC AND SPICE"

"The problem was discovered after the company received a complaint from a retail customer," the recall release said. "No reports of adverse reactions due to the consumption of these products have been confirmed. Anyone concerned about injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider. "
