Colorado’s Atlas Meat Co. in Fort Collins Wednesday recalled just more than a ton of pork sausage because of misbranding, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The pork products may contain monosodium glutamate (MSG), which is not declared on the product label, according to the recall notice.
The ground pork sausage items were produced on various dates from Oct. 12, 2016, through Jan. 23 this year. Consumers can identify the recalled products by looking for the following label information:
- 0.80 to 1.5-lb. vacuum-sealed or butcher paper wrapped packages containing “Atlas Meat Pork Breakfast Ssg.”
- 0.80 to 1.5-lb. vacuum-sealed or butcher paper wrapped packages containing “Atlas Meat Pork Italian Ssg.”
The recalled pork sausage has the establishment number “EST. 40306” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were sold directly to consumers at the firm’s Northern Colorado location and shipped to retail locations in the state and Wyoming.
The misbranding was discovered on Jan. 23, 2017, by FSIS inspection personnel during routine verification activities. Confirmed adverse reaction reports have not yet to be associated with the recalled pork. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
