Class II Recall

Augusta, May 28, 2014 – Jyang-Lee's Kitchen, a Maine company, is voluntarily recalling all Jyang-Lee's Kitchen brand poultry products that did not receive the full benefit of inspection. The Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry, Maine Meat and Poultry Inspection (MMPI) program made the announcement today.

Jyang-Lee's Kitchens operates an establishment in Coopers Mills, Maine. This recall is being issued because the Coopers Mills, Maine establishment had not been issued a State or USDA Grant of Inspection. Without the Grant of Inspection, inspection program personnel were not assigned to the establishment. Products produced without inspection are considered unfit for human consumption and must be recalled.

The products subject to recall include:

Jyang-Lee's Turkey Wonton

  • 15 count plastic bags with no code

Jyang-Lee's Mainely-Turkey Elegant Eggroll

  • 6 count plastic bags with no code

Jyang-Lee's Turkey Dumpling

  • 12 count plastic bags with no code

MMPI and the company have received no reports of illnesses due to consumption of these products.

The turkey products included were shipped to Maine retailers only. Consumers may return any of the recalled turkey products to the retailer of purchase, or contact Jyang-Lee's Kitchen 207-549-4507.

The problem was discovered when MMPI personnel observed Jyang-Lee's Kitchen turkey products offered for sale at retail not bearing the mark of inspection and began an investigation into the establishment.

MMPI routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
