Salm Partners, LLC, based in Denmark, Wisconsin, has issued a recall for approximately 35,430 pounds of Johnsonville turkey kielbasa sausage.AdThe U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) alerted the public to the recall, citing concerns over potential contamination with foreign materials, specifically pieces of rubber found within the product.

The recall affects 12-oz. vacuum-packed packages of Johnsonville POLISH KIELBASA TURKEY sausage, marked with best-by dates of "05/17/24" and "05/18/24."

These packages also display the establishment number "P-32009" and were produced during a brief window from October 30 to October 31, 2023.

Distributed to retail outlets across the country, these products are now being pulled from shelves in a bid to prevent consumer exposure to the hazardous materials.

The discovery of the rubber pieces came to light following complaints from consumers who encountered the foreign material in their ready-to-eat sausage products.AdDespite the findings, there have been no confirmed reports of injuries or adverse reactions from consuming the sausages. Nevertheless, the FSIS advises anyone concerned about potential injury to seek medical advice.

In an effort to mitigate the risk posed by the contaminated sausages, the FSIS urges consumers to inspect their refrigerators for the recalled products.

Those in possession of the affected sausages are advised not to consume them. Instead, they should either dispose of the products or return them to their place of purchase for a refund.

The recall is a precautionary measure to ensure the safety and well-being of consumers nationwide.
