WASHINGTON - Thirteen-and-a-half ounce vacuum packages of Johnsonville turkey sausage with cheddar cheese are being recalled because they could contain pieces of gloves, according to an announcement by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) Monday.
Contaminated packages are marked with establishment number “EST. P-34224” and are labeled with the “best by” date of Aug. 20, 2012.
The product was produced on May 22, 2012 and distributed nationwide.
FSIS was alerted of the problem after receiving two consumer complaints. No injuries have been reported due to consumption of the sausage, a USDA representative said.
FSIS has taken steps to ensure the product is no longer being sold to customers, according to a news release.
Anyone with questions about the product or recall should contact Johnsonville consumer relations at 800-270-4662.
