Sausage with MSG recalled
London Meat Co., a New York, N.Y., establishment, is recalling approximately 200 pounds of country breakfast sausage because it contains monosodium glutamate (MSG), which is not declared on the label, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced.
The products subject to recall include 5-pound boxes of “Milano’s Country Breakfast Sausage,” containing 80 sausage links per box. Each box bears the establishment number “EST. 8777” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These products were made-to-order for restaurants and caterers in the New York City area through Feb. 21, 2012.
The problem was discovered during a routine inspection by FSIS personnel. FSIS has determined that the MSG was introduced into the product when the company changed seasoning blends but did not update its product label. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
