A Canadian firm is recalling nearly 9,000 pounds of meat products it sent to the U.S. that crossed the border without being inspected.

The American Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) issued the recall notice late Saturday about products made by Ontario-based Santa Maria Foods, including several types of Mastro brand salami.

The meat was sold in Arizona, California and Florida, and also exported by the American distributor to Australia, New Zealand, Tahiti, Fiji and Thailand.

The FSIS said there have been no reports of illness due to consumption of the products, but that there is “a remote possibility of adverse health consequences” when full inspection is not conducted.
