DALLAS -- Federal health officials say a Dallas-based meat distributor is recalling about 8,200 pounds of beef and pork products because they weren't inspected and were improperly labeled.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service said Monday one product from Lao Chareune Foods could not be labeled as a pork snack stick because it was raw. The agency said the products were distributed to retail stores in Louisiana and Texas.

The products recalled were 3-ounce and 8-ounce packages containing "Pork Snack Stick;" 3.2-ounce packages of "Seasoned Fried Beef;" 1.76-ounce packages of "Fried Pork Skins;" and 1.2-ounce packages of "Sliced Fried Pork Ears."

Federal officials said they hadn't received any reports of illness from consumption of the products.

There was no answer at a phone listing for the company.
