August 10, 2020 — Health officials are warning about a risk of Listeria infection from certain Lidl sausages manufactured by Bluegrass Provisions Co., of Crescent Springs, Kentucky.
No recall was requested by the USDA because the sausage is past its “use-by” date, but consumers may still have products in their freezers.
The ready-to-eat smoked sausage products were produced on April 22, 2020 and shipped to distributors, certain Lidl grocery stores, and other stores in Kentucky, Ohio, North Carolina, and Virginia.
The problem was discovered after a routine test of a product was positive for Listeria monocytogenes. As a precaution, the company recalled other sausage items due to cross-contamination.
The recall includes the following sausage products:
- 14-oz. plastic packages containing 6 pieces of “BLUE GRASS METTWURST,” with a use or freeze by date of July 23, 2020.
- 14-oz. plastic packages containing 6 pieces of “WALNUT CREEK FOODS Smoked Sausage,” with a use or freeze by date of July 23, 2020.
- 14-oz. plastic packages containing 6 pieces of Lidl “SMOKED BRATWURST,” with a use or freeze by date of July 23, 2020.
- 14-oz. plastic packages containing 6 pieces of Lidl “SMOKED BRATWURST WITH CHEESE,” with a use or freeze by date of July 23, 2020.
