Another Recall: Trader Joe’s, Al Fresco Chicken Sausage Might Contain Plastic

As soon as it was announced that Blue Bell Creameries had recalled all their products after more ice cream samples tested positive for Listeria concerns, as reported by the Wall Street Journal, another food recall was announced. That one involved an announcement about Kayem Foods out of Chelsea, Massachusetts, whose nearly 60,000 pounds of fully cooked chicken sausage products may contain plastic, reports the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The almost-30-tons of the chicken sausage include the Al Fresco and brands sold at Trader Joe’s, reports NBC Bay Area. The government published a press release titled “066-2015 Kayem Foods Recalls Sausage Products Due To Possible Foreign Matter Contamination” on April 20 that detailed exactly how consumers can determine if they have the potentially recalled foods in their homes.

“12-oz. packages of Trader Joe’s brand “Sweet Apple Chicken Sausage” with the case code 9605 and use by/freeze by dates of ‘4 22 15,’ ‘4 25 15,’ and ‘4 29 15.’

8-oz. packages of al fresco brand ‘Apple Maple Fully Cooked Breakfast Chicken Sausage’ with the case code 9709 and use by/freeze by dates of ‘JUN 13 2015’ and ‘JUN 20 2015.’

The products subject to recall bear the establishment number ‘P7839’ inside the USDA mark of inspection.”

The USDA went on to report that the recalled chicken sausage was sent to stores all across the nation, so no matter what state you reside within the United States, it would help to check your chicken sausage packaging against the numbers the government provided to stay safe in this latest food recall.

The recall was launched after the company got feedback from two customers who discovered small plastic pieces in their chicken sausages.

Trader Joe’s website also posted information about the recalled chicken sausages, along with a photo of the product.

As reported by the Inquisitr, previous food recalls included a certain brand of walnuts sold at Trader Joe’s, as well as additional recalls for hummus and other foods.
