WASHINGTON – Kenosha Beef International LTD is recalling approximately 89,235 lbs. of pork sausage patty products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, the US Dept. of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) reported.
The problem was discovered after the Kenosha, Wis.-based establishment began receiving consumer complaints that small pieces of metal were being found in the products used to make a line of sausage products for a customer, Sheyboygan Falls, Wis.-based Johnsonville Sausage. The source of the foreign material is unknown at this time.
The frozen, pork sausage patties were produced on May 13, 2015. The following products are subject to recall:
* 24-oz. cartons of “Johnsonville Grillers CHEDDAR CHEESE & BACON FLAVOR.”
* 13.5-lb. cases of “Johnsonville Grillers CHEDDAR CHEESE & BACON FLAVOR” containing nine, 24-oz. cartons of the product.
* Retail products subject to recall bear the establishment number “EST. 425B” and a “BEST FLAVOR BY” date of “12/29/15” on the end flap of the package. Cases of the recalled product bear the establishment number.
* “EST. 425B” inside the USDA mark of inspection on the generic label. These items were shipped to retail locations in Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Texas and Wisconsin.
FSIS and the company have received no reports of oral injury, adverse reactions or illness due to consumption of these products.
