The USDA has announced an urgent recall for Johnsonville products that ‘may be contaminated with extraneous materials’

No injuries have been reported thus far. 

Kenosha Beef International in Kenosha, Wisconsin, has issued a recall for approximately 90,000 pounds of Johnsonville frozen sausage patty products after consumers found small pieces of metal in the products, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced in a press release.

The recall applies to cartons of Johnsonville Grillers Cheddar Cheese & Bacon Flavor with the establishment number “EST. 425B” and a best-by date of December 29, 2015.

The product, which the FSIS classified as posing a high health risk, “may be contaminated with extraneous materials,” though the source of the materials is not yet known.

So far, the FSIS has not received reports of oral injury or adverse reactions from consumption of the products. Consumers who have purchased the affected items are urged to throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.


The products were distributed to retail locations in Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Texas, and Wisconsin.
