Each recalled package bears the establishment number "EST. 1627A" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The following assorted meat products were produced between

They are: Gio Lua Tay Ho Pork Meat Loaf Wrapped in Banana Leaves Fully Cooked; Bo Vien Tay Ho Beef Meat Ball Fully Cooked; Doi Gio Heo Tay Ho Cured Pork Hock Sausage with Onion Wrapped in Pork Skin Fully Cooked; and Cha Chiien Tay Ho Fried Pork Pattie Fried in Vegetable Oil Fully Cooked.  Also recalled was Bo Vien Gan Tay Ho Beef Meat Ball with Beef Tendon Fully Cooked produced between April 15, 2009 and April 14, 2010.
