Allergen Alert: MSG in Sausages

London Meat Co. of New York, NY is recalling approximately 200 pounds of sausage because it contains monosodium glutamate (MSG), which is not listed on the label, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Monday.

There have been no reports of adverse reactions.

FSIS said its personnel discovered the problem during a routine inspection. FSIS said the MSG was added as an ingredient when seasoning blends were changed, but the company did not update its product label.

The recall is of 5-lb boxes of “Milano’s Country Breakfast Sausage,” containing 80 sausage links per box. Each box bears the establishment number “EST. 8777” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

These recalled sausages were made-to-order for restaurants and caterers in the New York City area through Feb. 21, 2012. 

For more information contact the company’s co-owner Michael Milano at 212- 255-2135.
