This lot of Pork Patties was involved in an insurance claim and is being sold by the insurance company to recover funds from loss.
********** Addtl Details on Export Requirements- Comment from supplier why these Pork Patties cannot be sold in the U.S.: "there were three specific deviations from USDA guidelines that prevent this product from being sold domestically: Two were labeling deviations, but the main one is a processing deviation – that one is the reason that we cannot bring this back into compliance for a seconds customer:
• Per USDA Standards and Labeling Policy Book, “Caramel Color” may not be added to the formulation of a raw product.
1) The “Caramel Color” ingredient is labeled as “Caramelized Sugar Syrup” because we had to match the existing ingredient statement – this required USDA approval.
2) The product name should actually be “Pork and Textured Soy Protein Patty”, due to the ratio of Meat to Textured Soy Protein in the formula.
a. Per USDA Standards and Labeling Policy Book, If the ratio of Meat to Textured Vegetable Protein is < 10:1, then the Textured Vegetable Protein must be part of the product name. This product’s ratio was 7:1. Again, since we were matching the existing product, we had to get approval for this deviation.”
