38,000 Pounds of Sausage Recalled

sausage 38,000 Pounds of Sausage Recalled[1]The Smithfield Packing Company — a Smithfield Foods (NYSE:SFD[2]) subsidiary — is recalling 38,000 pounds of pork sausage due to possible contamination.

The company is concerned that its products might contain small bits of plastic — possibly from gloves — and might harm consumers. No injuries have been reported from the possible contamination but the company did receive two complaints.

The USDA issued the recall yesterday[3]. The sausage products were distributed in Alabama, Washington, D.C., Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Texas. The packages subject to recall include:

Both can also be identified by looking inside the USDA Mark of Inspection. If it reads “Est. 221-A” it should be returned.
