TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Canadian firm is recalling 8,895 pounds of meat from Arizona, California and Florida because it did not receive proper USDA inspection, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

Upon review, the FSIS realized that products from the company, Santa Maria Food Corporations, were not inspected at the US-Canadian border.

The following Santa Maria Foods Corporation products are subject to recall:

11.1-oz. "Sopressata Salami" bearing package code "2014AL30"

5.1-lbs. "MASTRO Milano Salami" bearing package code "2014JN17"

5.3-lbs. "MASTRO Calabrese Salami Hot" bearing package code "2014JL08" or "2014JN17"

8.4-lbs. "MASTRO Sopressata Round" bearing package code "2014JL22"

2.6-lbs. "MASTRO Sopressata Salami" bearing package code "2014JL09"

13.3-lbs. "MASTRO Mortadella with Pistachios" bearing package code "2014AL09"

15.0-lbs. "MASTRO Jambon de Paris Cooked Ham Jambon Cuit" bearing package code "2014AL05," "2014AL10," "2014AL10," "2014AL10" or "2014AL22"

16.8-lbs. "MASTRO Mortadella" bearing package code "2014MR20"

The recall has been labeled a "Class II," which means that there is a remote possibility of illness related to the meat. This is opposed to a "Class I" recall, which presents reasonable probability of illness and a "Class III" recall, which is considered not to be harmful.

So far, no reports of illness from the product have been received, but the USDA recommends that anyone who suspects illness should contact their doctor.
