XENIA, Ohio (AP) — The Agriculture Department says Bob Evans Farms is recalling nearly 47,000 pounds of pork sausage links because it might contain pieces of plastic.
The items have establishment number “EST 6785” and were sold in Indiana, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.
The Food and Safety Inspection Service says there are no confirmed reports of any injuries.
The 12-ounce (340 gram) trays are labeled Bob Evans Maple Pork Sausage Links, Brown Sugar and Honey, Fresh from Meijer Maple Flavored Sausage Links or Giant Eagle Maple Pork Breakfast Sausage Links Caramel Color Added. All have a lot code of 8213.
When contacted, local Festival Foods and Pick ‘n’ Save stores say they do not carry this brand of Bob Evans Product.
Woodman’s says they have removed all of these Bob Evans sausage products as a precaution.
When contacted, a Hy Vee representative says they do not have the same lot code numbers for the Bob Evans sausages on recall but are pulling them all anyway from coolers and shelves for the time being.
The Agriculture Department says sausage packs with the lot code of 8213 should be thrown out or returned to a place of purchase if found in your home.
