The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 7147” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to a distributor and retail locations in the US state of Missouri.
The problem was discovered when State of Missouri Department of Agriculture Compliance Investigators found the Sausage products in a retail case and the products were missing ingredients statements and safe handling instructions on the individual cryovac packages. The master case was properly labeled with ingredient and safe handling label but these were not shown to consumers.
If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of these recalled Italian Sausage Products and could be allergic to their MSG 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.

If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure small children and pets can’t access the suspect food.
