FSIS discovered the problem during label verification, the agency said. The San Leandro, Calif.-based company changed the product's formulation to include MSG, but neglected to include the ingredient on the label. There have been no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the sausages.
The product subject to recall is Individual “Chinese Style Chicken Sausage.” The sausages, a dried snack food, were produced June 12, Aug. 14, Sept. 4 and Oct. 24, 2013 and were sold at a single San Francisco retail location. The products have a shelf-life of one year, and some consumers may refrigerate, continue to air dry or freeze them, FSIS said.
