The product subject to recall:  5-lb. vacuum packs of  Neto’s Mexican Chorizo.”  The product subject to recall bears the establishment number “6086” inside the USDA mark of inspection and can be further identified by the item number “18062” and lot codes “11279,” “11293,” “11304,” “11321,” “11333,” or “11341.”
