Portland-based sausage maker Olympia Provisions is recalling nearly 200 pounds of product shipped to three states: Oregon, California and Washington. This information comes according to an announcement made Sunday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service(FSIS).
The brand’s ready-to-eat pork sausage products labeled “Mortadella Classica with garlic and spices” were mislabeled. They should have been labeled as “Mortadella Pistachio” products. The mislabeled products contain an undeclared allergen. The affected products have a best-by date of 12-30-2019.
Although the error was picked up by a consumer, there are no confirmed cases of allergic or other reactions to eating the sausage.
Consumers should not eat the product, discard them or return the packages to the store for a refund.
