May 26, 2017 — A Kansas-based food service company has recalled over 90,000 pounds of fully-cooked breakfast sausages after reports of metal bits in the sausages.
The recalled breakfast sausages were recalled on May 24 by Eckrich Meats, LLC, of Junction City, Kansas.
There are no reports of any injuries or illnesses associated with the products, but consumers with concerns should contact a healthcare professional.
The problem was discovered on May 15, when Eckrich was notified by another establishment that “pieces of metal were embedded in fully cooked sausage product,” according to the USDA’s Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS).
About 8,769 cases were distributed to food service companies in Texas, Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma. They were not sold individually for retail sale.
The following products were recalled:
- ECKRICH SMOK-Y CHEDDAR Breakfast Sausage, Naturally Hardwood Smoked
- Case code/UPC number “27815 17984”
- Use By date “08/17/17”
- “EST. 3JC” inside the USDA mark of inspection
- Produced / Packaged from April 26-April 28, 2017
Eckrich urges consumers not to eat the recalled products. The products should be thrown away or returned to the store where they were purchased for a full refund.
