Potentially underprocessed sausage recalled
Pinnacle Foods Group LLC, a Fort Madison, Iowa establishment, is recalling approximately 90,975 pounds of bourbon barbecue sausage products because they may have been underprocessed, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.
The products subject to recall include 5-oz. cans of “Armour Vienna Sausage Bourbon BBQ Flavored” (24 per case). Each can bears the establishment number "P-4247" inside the USDA mark of inspection, a UPC Code of “54100 93824” and a Use By date of Sept. 7, 2015. The products subject to recall were produced on Sept. 7, 2012, and sold to retail establishments nationwide.
The problem was discovered by the company. The company believes the problem occurred as a result of processing time miscalculations that caused the product to be undercooked during the production process. FSIS and the company have received no reports of illnesses due to consumption of these products.
