Texas Meat Company Recalls Over 20 Tons of Smoked Sausage
A Texas company is recalling 23 metric tons of smoked sausage products.
According to CBS 7, the USDA released a statement saying products from Eddy Packing Company from the packing dates of April 5 and 6 were recalled because of possible plastic contamination.
The products were shipped inside Texas as well as Georgia, Illinois, California, Oklahoma and New Mexico to food service and retail locations.
The problem was found when a restaurant complained to Eddy Packing about hard white plastic found in some of the sausage during slicing.
The recalled products have "EST. 4800" inside the USDA mark, if you see this code they should be returned or discarded.
The recall includes the following brands: Eddy Fully Cooked Premium Smoked Sausage, Dickey's Barbeque Pit Original Smoked Fresh Polish Sausage Made With Pork and Beef, Lowe's Original Recipe Naturally Hardwood Smoked Sausage Made With Pork and Beef, Eddy Smoked Sausage Made With Pork and Beef, Carl's Pork and Beef Smoked Sausage, Eddy Southern Style Pork and Beef Smoked Sausage and Dickey Cheese/Jalapeno Pork and Beef Sausage Ring.
The USDA said that there have been no illnesses or injuries reported to their office at this time.
