Updated: Wednesday, February 27 2013, 03:22 PM EST
Schmalz’s European Provisions, a Springfield, N.J. establishment, is recalling approximately 8,424 pounds of chicken and apple sausage that may contain small pieces of plastic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
The following product is subject to recall:
- 12 oz. vacuum packages of “Applegate Organics Chicken and Apple Sausage” with “Use or Freeze By 03/17/13” on each package.
The problem was discovered after the company received three consumer complaints. FSIS and the company have received no reports of injury at this time. Anyone concerned about an injury from consumption of these products should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify that recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
Consumers with food safety questions can “Ask Karen,” the FSIS virtual representative available 24 hours a day at www.AskKaren.gov or via smartphone at m.askkaren.gov.
