More than 2,000 pounds of Perdue Foods' organic chicken sausages have been recalled because they might be contaminated with "extraneous materials," according to a release from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The ready-to-eat Italian-style sausages, produced on March 27 and shipped to distributors in Connecticut and Maryland, were recalled after the company reported that it had received three complaints from consumers who noticed blue plastic materials in the meat. There have been no reports of injuries resulting from the dish, the FSIS statement confirms.
"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," it adds. Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Perdue Consumer Relations, at (877) 727-3447. More information can be found on the FSIS website.
