Before firing up that grill this Sunday evening, you may want to check your refrigerator for one more product that has been recalled. Johnsonville, maker of sausages and other meat products has recalled 95,000 pounds of products following consumer complaints of finding hard, green plastic in smoked jalapeño cheddar sausages.
The products subjected to recall were made and packaged on March 12, 2019 and have a best-by date of June 9, 2019 printed on the back of the 14-ounce packages. They also bear the establishment number “EST. 34224” printed inside the USDA inspection mark on the labeling.
The USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is concerned customers may still have these on hand or may eat them and advise they do not.
“Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.”
Johnsonville, LLC. has distributed the affected smoked sausage nationally and internationally. There is no specific shipping information as to what stores have been carrying the products and what restaurants are selling these as menu items. Therefore, all consumers should be on alert.
For additional questions and information, consumers should contact Kirsten Bishir, Johnsonville’s Consumer Relations Coordinator at KBishir@johnsonville.com or by phone at 888-556-2728.
