Bob Evans Farms Foods, Inc., a Xenia, Ohio establishment, is recalling approximately 7,560 pounds of Italian pork sausage products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically thin blue rubber, according to USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The raw, Italian pork sausage items were produced on September 8, 2022. The following products are subject to recall :
- 1-lb. chubs containing “Bob Evans Italian Sausage” with lot code XEN3663466 and a “USE/FRZ BY” date of 11/26/22, with a time stamp between 14:43 and 15:25.
The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “EST. 6785” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.
The blue rubber was discovered after the firm notified FSIS it had received consumer complaints reporting thin blue pieces of rubber in the product.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to the consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS is concerned that some products may be in consumers’ refrigerators or freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
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.
