Connecticut Establishment Has Recalled Beef And Pork Products

Stamford, CT. (SafetyAlerts) - United States Department of Agriculture, Food Safety and Inspection Service, (FSIS) said that DeYulio’s Sausage Co. has recalled approximately 700 pounds of fresh beef and pork sausage products because they contain undeclared ingredients, including sodium metabisulfite.

Sodium metabisulfite can be a health hazard to people who are sensitive to sulfites, particularly asthmatics. Some persons who have eaten foods containing sulfites have reported adverse reactions ranging from mild to life-threatening.

The products subject to recall are one pound packages of "O’NEILL’S BRAND DANNY’S OWN RECIPE BEEF BANGERS" and "O’NEILL’S BRAND DANNY’S OWN RECIPE PORK BANGERS." Each package bears the establishment code "EST. 8756" inside the USDA seal of inspection.

The product was produced between Dec. 19, 2001 and Jan. 8, 2002 and distributed to retail stores in Connecticut and New York.

"Because of the potential health hazard involved with consuming these products, consumers who have concerns about sulfites should return the products to the point of purchase," said Maggie O’K. Glavin, FSIS acting administrator.

The problem was discovered through routine FSIS inspection.

Consumers and media with questions about the recall may contact Patricia D. Oxer, office manager, DeYulio’s Sausage Co., at (203) 348-2727.

Consumers with food safety questions can phone the toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at l-800-535-4555. The hotline can be reached from l0 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday, and recorded food safety messages are available 24 hours a day
