WASHINGTON, Jan. 28 (UPI) -- The U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service says about 50,000 pounds of Jin Mai Lang-brand instant noodle products are being recalled due to import rules.

The FSIS said the Well Luck Co. Inc. of Jersey City, N.J., initiated the recall because the China-made noodles were ineligible for importation into the United States.

Federal inspectors said the instant noodle products do not meet product inspection or exemption requirements for poultry, beef and pork. The FSIS said China's food safety inspection system has not been deemed equivalent to U.S. standards, as required by federal regulations.

The recalled instant noodle products were distributed to retail establishments nationwide.

Consumers with questions can contact the company at 201-434-1177, extension 141.
