Artisan Fresh Chicken Sausage Recall Due To Pieces of Plastic in Sausage

More than 26,000 pounds of chicken apple sausage sold under the Artisan Fresh label has been recalled because it may contain small pieces of plastic that could injure consumers. 

The Artisan Fresh chicken apple sausage recall was announced by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) on March 31, after a report was received where at least one consumer found the foreign material in the sausage. However, no injuries have been associated with the recalled sausage.

The recall affects 1 lb. vacuum-sealed, 3 to a pack packages of Artisan Fresh All Natural chicken & apple sausage with a sell-by date of June 23, 2012; and 36-lb. cases of Artisan Fresh, All Natural Chicken Apple Sausage containing 12 3-lb. packages with an establishment number of P-4800 inside the USDA mark of inspection and bearing codes 42450 or P13203 on the label.

All of the products being recalled were produced February 9, 2012 by Eddy Packing Co., Inc., based in Yoakum, Texas. The sausages were distributed nationally through the company’s warehouse chain on February 14.

The FSIS recommends that anyone who is concerned that they suffered an injury or illness related to the consumption of these products should contact a healthcare provider. The recall did not detail how the plastic got into the sausage or what the company is doing to address the problem. The FSIS has classified the recall as a Class II food recall with a low health risk.
