Additional information:
The United States Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) reports the following Sausage Products are subject to this recall:

  • 16-ounce vacuum packed “Hot Franks” with a packaging code in the format “###14”
  • Various size packages of “Polish Sausage Hot” with packaging codes 15314, 15514, 16114, 16214, 16814, 16514 or 16914
  • Various size packages of “Beef Polish Sausage Hot” with packaging codes 15314, 15514, 16114, 16214, 16814, 16514 or 16914

According to the USDA, the products subject to recall bear “EST. 15708” inside the USDA mark of inspection on the labels. The Hot Franks were produced on various dates from January 16, through June 20, 2014. The other products were produced on various dates from June 3, through June 18, 2014. All products were distributed to retailers in Iowa.

The problem was discovered by FSIS inspection personnel during a food safety assessment. After investigation, it was determined that the “natural hot flavor” used in the products contained wheat and soy as sub-ingredients of soy sauce. The mislabeling in the Polish sausage products occurred due to a change to using this ingredient.
