The Bob Evans Farms Company is recalling approximately 4,200 pounds of pork sausage products as they may be contaminated with foreign materials, specifically fine blue rubber.
The raw pork sausage was produced on December 17, 2020, according to the Food Safety and Inspection Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (FSIS).
The items being recalled are the Bob Evans Italian Sausage brand 1 pound packages, with lot code 0352 and an expiration date of January 31, 2021.
The products also bear the establishment number “EST. 6785 “printed directly above the expiration date. These items were shipped to retail stores in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
The problem came to light after the Bob Evans Company notified FSIS that they had received complaints from consumers. Anyone concerned about possible injury or illness should see a medical professional immediately.
Consumers who have purchased the products are being asked to be thrown away or returned to the store where they were purchased, but should not be consumed, as reported on WGNTV.
Anyone with questions on this matter can contact Alison Emery, Director of Communications for Bob Evans Farms at 614-778-1886 or [email protected]
