There's another sausage recall. An Alabama company is recalling 11,664 pounds of chicken and pork sausages for a scary reason.
They revealed that they are recalling the sausage because they're concerned there may be metal pieces in the sausages. This would be extremely dangerous to the health of anyone who ingested the meat.
R. L. Zeigler Co. is recalling 24-ounce packages that contain approximately nine ready-to-eat links of Red Hots or Extra Hot Red Hots and have a use-by date of Jan. 24. They were produced on Nov. 29 and have “EST. P-9156S” printed inside the U.S. Department of Agriculture mark of inspection on the products' packaging.
It was a consumer who alerted the food manufacturer to the metal in the meet. The complaint was received on December 13. After investigating the complaints, the company alerted the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service.
The company said in a statement that it "has reported that no medical illnesses or harmful effects have resulted from this product thus far. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider."
The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service said it's concerned some of the sausages may be in consumers' refrigerators or freezers and is advising people who have the sausages anywhere in their homes to throw them out or return them to the store where the food was purchased.
