The U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has announced a nationwide recall on chicken sausages on Feb. 27. Schmalz’s European Provisions has recalled 8,424 pounds of chicken and apple sausages due to concerns that they may contain small pieces of plastic.
The Springfield, N.J.-based sausage company recalled the “Applegate Organics Chicken and Apple Sausage” product after receiving three consumer complaints.
The affected 12-ounce vacuumed packed chicken and apple sausages will have the “Use or Freeze by 3/17/13” stamped on the packages; they will also bear “P-5411” inside the USDA mark inspection.
The affected pounds of meat – produced on Jan. 24 – were sold nationwide to retail stores all over the United States including via limited internet sales in New Jersey.
No illnesses or injuries were reported as a result of this recall to date.
According to the USDA FSIS concerning this Class II Recall, “This is a health hazard situation where there is a remote probability of adverse health consequences from the use of the product.”
Consumers may direct any questions or concerns to Gina Asoudegan, Public Affairs Specialist or Gerry Clarkson, Consumer Affairs Specialist at 800-587-5858.
