Company recalls over 30,000 pounds of meat shipped to Louisiana and Texas restaurants

- A La Carte Foods Properties of Belle Rose recalled over 30,000 pounds of frozen meat and poultry produced without federal inspection, according to the United States Department of Agriculture. 

The issue was discovered when an A La Carte Foods Properties employee notified USDA Thursday (Oct. 11) that they used meat products from a source that was not federally-inspected. 

The items were shipped to restaurant locations in Louisiana and Texas. The USDA is concerned that some products may still be in restaurants’ freezers. If found, the products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

There have been no reported sicknesses caused by eating the product. Anyone concerned about a reaction is urged to contact their healthcare provider.
