Johnsonville remembers 95 kg of sausage over pollution
WASHINGTON – Johnsonville recalls about 95,393 pounds of its finished jalapeño cheddar smoked sausages that may contain a foreign ingredient – hard green plastic.
The US Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the recall Friday.
Meat products under recall were produced and packed on March 12 and 13, 2019. The 14-ounce vacuum packs have a "best by" date 06/09/2019 and "EST.34224" inside the USDA tag of inspection.
The company announced the recall after a customer complained about the plastic. The Wisconsin company says there have been no confirmed diseases or adverse reactions.
In January, Johnsonville recalled over 48,000 pounds of pork products that may have contained black rubber.
Customers who may have purchased the smart sausages are encouraged to throw them away or return them to the store where they were purchased. For more information, see the USDA website.
