People purchase items all of the time. The items range from food to household supplies to other items. When we purchase something, we expect it to be safe. One set of items that we especially expect to be safe are the food items we purchase, as problems with food can cause serious illness or other medical complications. Recently some sausage was recalled because of potential problems with it.
Bob Evans Farms has announced a recall for almost 50,000 pounds of sausage. The recall comes after the discovery that the sausage may contain pieces of plastic. The sausage effected by the recall is pork sausage links that are marked with the establishment number of “EST 6785.” The sausages were sold all over the midwest, including Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan and Ohio.
Neither Bob Evans Farms or the Food and Safety Inspection Service has received any reports of injuries occurring from people having consumed the sausages. The sausages included in the recall are:
- Bob Evans Maple Pork Sausage Links
- Brown Sugar and Honey Sausage Links
- Fresh from Meijer Maple Flavored Sausage Links
- Giant Eagle Maple Pork Breakfast Sausage Links (Caramel Color Added
All of the recalled sausages have the same lot code, which is 8213.
If you have some of the recalled sausages, you should not eat them. They should either be thrown away or returned to the place that they were purchased at. It is important that the sausages are not consumed because of the potential for the sausages to be contaminated with sausage, which could potentially cause health issues.
