Central Washington eatery’s tamales recalled, not inspected

UNION GAP, Wash. (AP) — More than 9,000 pounds of tamales made by a central Washington state restaurant is being recalled.

The United States Department of Agriculture said Friday that Los Hernandez, LLC is recalling the chicken and pork tamales because they were produced without federal inspection.

The food was shipped to the Los Hernandez Tamales Restaurant in Union Gap, Washington, between December 3 2018 and February 2019.

The food had been sold as individual products to customers through May 1, 2019, which may still be in home freezers.

No one has reported getting sick from eating the tamales but authorities are asking people not to consume the items as a precaution.

The company and the USDA are urging customers to either throw it away or return it to where it was purchased.
