Additional information:
The United States Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) reports the following Italian Sausage products are thought to have been produced on or about December 17, 2020 and subject to this recall:

  • Bob Evans Italian Sausage, sold in one (1)-pound chubs with lot code 0352 and a “USE/FRZ BY” date of “JAN 31 21” represented on the label.

==> No barcodes, UPCs, NDCs, DINs, item numbers, best-before date codes, manufacturing date codes, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation. One (1) additional image of the recalled Pork Sausage products can be found on the Web site above.

According to the USDA, the Sausage products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 6785” printed directly above the “USE/FRZ BY” date. These items were known to have been shipped to retail locations in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

The recall was initiated after Bob Evans notified the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (“FSIS”) that it received consumer complaints concerning thin blue rubber fragments. As a result of this reported defect, you should neither serve nor consume the recalled Bob Evans Italian Sausage identified above.

In general, if plastic, rubber 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 Bob Evans Italian Pork Sausage products, 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 a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to properly treat choking, oral injury, internal ingestion, GI tract laceration damage and bowel obstruction.
