A recall has been issued for Perdue chicken sausage that was shipped to Connecticut.
The recall posted on the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food and Safety Inspection Service web site says Perdue Foods LLC. in Gainesville, Ga. is recalling 2,148 pounds of chicken sausage products shipped to Connecticut and Maryland that might be contaminated with blue packaging materials.
The Italian chicken sausage links were produced on March 27, 2017 and come in 24-oz. plastic packages containing eight links of fully cooked ready to eat “PERDUE HARVESTLAND Italian Style Organic Chicken Sausage.”
The packages have the code 64405, a sell- or freeze-by date of June 25 and the establishment number “P-2617” inside the USDA inspection mark.
The U.S.D.A. says the problem was discovered on May 5 after three consumers complained about blue plastic materials in the sausage.
No injuries have been reported, but anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
Anyone who bought the products should throw them away or return them to the store you bought them at.
