WASHINGTON (WFLA) – Chicken sausage products are being recalled due to mislabeling, according to the US Department of Agriculture’s website.
Kayem Foods Inc. out of Massachusetts recalled about 22,182 pounds of chicken sausage products due to misbranding. The products are encased in pork casings, which are not declared on the label.
This may elicit allergic reactions in those allergic to pork proteins, according to USDA. The nutritional labeling information is incorrect as well.
The sausages under recall were produced on Nov. 4, 2015, and packaged into 12-ounce vacuum-sealed bags labeled as ‘al fresco SWEET APPLE CHICKEN SAUSAGE” with the identification code “308 BW12 USE/FRZ BY FEB 7, 2016.”
The products under recall have the establishment number “EST. P-7839” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The sausages were shipped to stores nationwide.
The company discovered the problem with the labeling after receiving consumer complaints about the wrong nutritional information on the packages. There were no confirmed reports about any illnesses in connection with this recall. If you have any questions about the recall, you can contact Brenda Navaroli, Customer Service Manager, at (800)426-6100.
