Eckrich recalling more than 90,000 pounds of breakfast sausages due to metal pieces
May 29, 2017
Armour Eckrich Meats is recalling about 90,978 pounds of ready-to-eat sausage products that may be contaminated with pieces of metal, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said Wednesday.
The fully cooked pork, turkey, and beef breakfast sausage items were produced and packaged from April 26 through April 28, 2017. The following products are subject to recall:
8,769 cases of 16.6 oz. vacuumed packages containing “ECKRICH SMOK-Y CHEDDAR BREAKFAST SAUSAGE, NATURALLY HARDWOOD SMOKED” on the label, case code/ UPC number “27815 17984,” and a Use By date of “08/17/17.”
The products subject to recall have the establishment number “EST. 3JC” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to distribution centers in Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas.
The problem was discovered on May 15 when another FSIS-regulated establishment notified Armour Eckrich Meats that pieces of metal were found in a fully cooked sausage product made by the company.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to eating these products, the FSIS said. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to eat them, the company and FSIS said. They should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
Consumers with questions about the recall can call 877-933-4625.
