Small bits of metal in pork sausage triggers recall
Wisconsin-based Kenosha Beef International LTD has issued a recall of approximately 89,235 pounds of pork sausage patties after consumers found small pieces of metal in the products, according to USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
The frozen, pork sausage patties were produced on May 13, 2015. The following products are subject to recall:
24-oz. cartons of “Johnsonville Grillers CHEDDAR CHEESE & BACON FLAVOR.”
13.5-lb. cases of “Johnsonville Grillers CHEDDAR CHEESE & BACON FLAVOR” containing nine, 24-oz. cartons of the product.
Retail products subject to recall bear the establishment number “EST. 425B” and a “BEST FLAVOR BY” date of “12/29/15” on the end flap of the package. These items were shipped to retail locations in Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Texas and Wisconsin.
The problem was discovered after the company began receiving consumer complaints that small pieces of metal were being found in the products. FSIS says the source of the extraneous material is unknown at this time.
FSIS and the company said they have received no reports of oral injury, adverse reactions or illness due to consumption of these products.
