According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, tens of thousands of pounds of Jimmy Dean meat products possibly containing pieces of metal have been recalled.
The recall of more than 29,000 pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat pork and poultry sausage links products was announced on Monday following several complaints made to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). While no injuries have been reported to the Food Safety and Inspection Service, five consumer complaints about the product containing metal prompted the recall.
A press release from the USDA specifies the product being recalled as 23.4-ounce pouches of “Jimmy Dean HEAT ’n SERVE Original SAUSAGE LINKS Made with Pork & Turkey” with a “Use By” date of Jan. 31, 19. The USDA said anyone who has the product in their freezer should throw it away or return it to the place where they bought it.
