March 01, 2009|Times Staff and Wire Reports

A Bell Gardens food supply company is recalling 89,531 pounds of granulated chicken bouillon products, according to the Agriculture Department's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The bouillon, from Wei-Chuan USA Inc., originated from "an unapproved source" and was deemed ineligible for import into the country. After being notified by Customs and Border Protection, food safety agents couldn't determine whether the preparation of the poultry ingredients in the bouillon met federal regulations or an equivalent foreign inspection system. The 1-pound, 2.2-pound and 5-pound cans and packets of the bouillon were distributed to retailers in California, Illinois, New Jersey, Texas and Washington.
