WASHINGTON (HawaiiNewsNow)- Eddy Packing Co., Inc., a Yoakum, Texas, establishment is recalling approximately 26,136 pounds of chicken apple sausage products that may contain foreign materials, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Saturday.
The products subject to recall include:
• 1-lb. vacuum-sealed, 3 to a pack of "ARTISAN FRESH, ALL NATURAL chicken & apple sausage" bearing the USDA mark of inspection and have a sell-by date of June 23, 2012.
• 36-lb. cases containing 12/3-lb. packages of "ARTISAN FRESH, ALL NATURAL CHICKEN APPLE SAUSAGE" bearing the establishment number "P-4800" inside the USDA mark of inspection and bearing codes 42450 or P13203 on the label.
The problem was discovered as a result of consumer complaints about finding pieces of plastic in the product. FSIS and the company have received no reports of injury or illness at this time. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness from consumption of these products should contact a healthcare provider.
Sam's Club Hawaii says the store carries the product and has since removed it from shelves.
The products subject to recall were produced Feb. 9, 2012, and were distributed nationally through a warehouse chain on Feb. 14, 2012.
