According to the USDA, the Sausage products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 9179” or “P-9179” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to foodservice and retail locations in Alabama, Florida and Georgia.

The recall was initiated after a metal magnet was found in the beef trim source product of the processed Sausage products.

If plastic or metal fragments are ingested, they could cut the mouth, stomach or other parts of the GI tract, cause intestinal perforation or serious infection and possibly require surgical intervention for their safe removal.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. 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.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Smoked Sausage, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

If you have any questions about this recall notification, please contact Mr. Rick Bernaldo, Chief Operating Officer at Uncle John’s Pride at 1-813-685-7745.
