A Texas company has recalled nearly 25 tons (23 metric tons) of smoked sausage products due to possible plastic contamination.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture released a statement Friday saying the recall by Eddy Packing Co. involves products with packing dates of April 5 and April 6. The products were shipped to food service and retail locations in California, Georgia, Illinois, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.
The problem was discovered when Eddy Packing received complaints from a restaurant about white, hard plastic found in some sausage during slicing. No injuries or illnesses have been reported.
The recalled products have “EST. 4800” inside the USDA mark. They should be discarded or returned.
