The company has received reports of minor oral injury associated with consumption of these products. The USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (“FSIS”) has received no additional reports of injury or illness from consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness from consumption of these products should contact a healthcare provider.
