Artisan Sausage Recall

Eddy Packing has initiated a recall 26,136 pounds of Artisan chicken apple sausage products that may contain foreign materials – specifically plastic was found in the sausage. Yuck.

The chicken apple sausage products subject to this 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 by – who else? – consumer who complained there was plastic in their food. Not suprisingly, there are no reports of injuries or illness at this time. Plastic usually won’t hurt you but you never can tell. Obviously, if you are concered about injury or illness from these recalled products, call your doctor.
