Lee's Sandwiches recalls more than 210,000 pounds of meat products

Garden Grove-based Lee's Sandwiches recalls meat products that were not properly inspected

A Garden Grove firm is recalling about 213,000 pounds of meat products that were not properly inspected, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Lee's Sandwiches supplied restaurants in Arizona, California, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon and Texas with some of the products, including pork and chicken pates and cooked turkey breast and salami.

The firm also sold several types of beef jerky to stores in the same states.

There have been no reports of illness associated with eating the meat, which was produced between May 18, 2014, and May 18, 2015, according to the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The agency said Lee's has been processing food from federally inspected facilities and repackaging them without the required USDA inspection.

"Products produced without inspection present potential of increased human health risk," the agency said in a news release.
