Additional information:
The United States Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) reports the ready-to-eat (“RTE”) Hot Dog and Sausage items were produced on various dates from September 9, 2017 through April 29, 2018.

According to the FDA, the problem was discovered on May 12, 2018 by the establishment during product inventory activities. The establishment noticed that the label for the spice mixture used in the production of one of their Beef Polish sausage contained hydrolyzed soy protein as an ingredient. The Beef Polish Sausage, however, does not list the Soy ingredient on the finish product label.

Although the Beef Polish Sausage product is the only product that is formulated with the spice mix containing the Soy ingredient, there are several other ready-to-eat (“RTE”) Sausage and Hot Dog products made with Beef, Pork, and Turkey that are implicated in this recall action due to potential cross contamination via shared equipment during the raw and ready-to-eat processing steps.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a qualified healthcare provider on an urgent basis.

==> For information about Soy Allergy, please consult the “Allergens & Intolerances” tab on this site, located at the top of this page.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of these recalled Hot Dog and Sausage products and could be allergic to their Soy 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.

==> 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.
