WASHINGTON –Yoakum, Texas-based Eddy Packing Co., Inc. recalled 26,136 lbs. of chicken apple sausage on concerns the product may contain foreign materials, according to the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The product was produced Feb. 9 and was distributed nationally through a warehouse chain on Feb. 14. The products subject to the recall include:
