California Firm Has Recalled Beef Sausage

Vernon, CA (SafetyAlerts) - U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said that Papa Cantella’s Inc. has recalled approximately 6,570 pounds of beef sausage because of mislabeling.

The ingredient label on the beef sausage lists chicken, turkey and other ingredients not found in the product.

The products being recalled are 1lb. vacuum sealed packages of "SAUSAGE SHOP, PAPA CANTELLA’S, Fully Cooked, BEEF HOT LINKS, SMOKED SAUSAGE, MADE IN CALIFORNIA."

Each product bears a packaging code numbered between "0108" and "0422." The establishment code "EST. 6016" also appears on each package.

The products were produced between Jan. 8 and April 22, 2003 and distributed to retail stores in California and Nevada.

"We urge consumers who have concerns about the mislabeling of this product to check their freezers and refrigerators," said Dr. Garry L. McKee, FSIS administrator. "If they have concerns then they should return it to the point of purchase."

The problem was discovered by the company.

Consumers and media with questions about the recall may contact Tony Cantella, company vice president, at (800) 727-2676
