Company officials at Bob Evans Farms, Inc. (“Bob Evans”), a Xenia, Ohio establishment, recalled approximately 4,200 pounds of pork sausage product that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically thin blue rubber, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Thursday.
According to a statement released by officials, the raw pork sausage item was produced on December 17, 2020, and the following products are subject to recall:
- 1-lb. chubs containing “Bob Evans Italian Sausage” with lot code 0352 and a “USE/FRZ BY” date of “JAN 31 21” represented on the label.
Officials say the products are subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 6785,” printed directly above the “USE/FRZ BY” date.
According to officials, they discovered the problem and notified the food safety commission after consumers complained. Officials said some of the product was recalled in Pennsylvania, but there has been no confirmation of contaminated sausages in New Jersey at this time.
Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
The FSIS urges anyone with this product in their freezers to throw it away or return it to the store purchased from.
