WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service has issued a public health alert over Nutrion, a Washington state-based company that refused to expand a recall of more processed egg products.

The FSIS believes the products are unfit for human consumption.

Because Nutriom won’t expand the recall to an additional 118,541 pounds of the products, FSIS said in a news release it will take “appropriate action to remove the products from commerce.”

FSIS said it ordered the original recall in February because the company “allegedly recorded false laboratory results,” including for salmonella. FSIS wanted more products tested but the company declined.

In the statement, FSIS noted:

The following products were shipped to co-packers for incorporation into consumer-size packages:
