WASHINGTON – Chelsea, Mass.-based Kayem Foods is recalling approximately 59,203 lbs. of fully cooked chicken sausage on concerns of foreign matter contamination, the Food Safety and Inspection Service of the US Department of agriculture reported.

Kayem received complaints from two consumers who found small pieces of plastic in their sausages, according to FSIS. However, neither the company nor FSIS has received reports of injuries associated with product.

The sausages were produced on various dates in March, the agency said, and shipped to retail stores nationwide.

The products bear the establishment number “P7839” inside the USDA mark of inspection. Products subject to the recall include:

12-oz. packages of Trader Joe’s brand “Sweet Apple Chicken Sausage” with the case code 9605 and use by/freeze by dates of “4 22 15,” “4 25 15,” and “4 29 15.”
