More than 46,000 pounds of Bob Evans sausage recalled

Indiana included in the recall

Bob Evans Farms is recalling approximately 46,000 pounds of pork sausage products that may contain small plastic pieces.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the recall, which includes pork sold across the Midwest including Indiana.

The raw pork sausage link items were produced on Aug. 1 and include several types of sausage links with use by dates of Oct. 16, Sept. 6, and Sept. 10.

The products subject to recall include establishment number “EST 6785,” and were shipped to retail locations in Indiana, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.

The problem was discovered when the establishment received consumer complaints of extraneous material in the pork sausage products, according to the USDA.

“FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers’ freezers,” according to the recall notice. “Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them.”

The sausage products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
