29K Pounds of Sausage Recalled Over Risk of Metal

Newser — Arden Dier

Check your freezer for 23.4-oz. packages of Jimmy Dean's "Heat 'n Serve" sausages, recalled over an apparent risk of metal fragments. The Monday announcement from the Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service refers to five customer complaints of metal pieces in the frozen pork and poultry sausages by CTI Foods.

Some 29,000 pounds of sausage carrying the code A6382168, packaged on Aug. 4, 2018, with a use-by date of Jan. 31, 2019, have now been recalled, reports the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

"These items were shipped to an establishment in Tennessee where the product was further distributed to retail stores," according to the FSIS. It's unclear what caused the contamination.
