The problem was discovered by FSIS in-plant personnel during routine label verification activities.

FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession these recalled Sausage Products and could be allergic to their pork and sheep ingredients, have a close family member who is allergic or has previously experienced Anaphylaxis or are unsure of your allergy status, please do not consume them. Instead, return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
