12 Pound Boxes of Alliant Prestige Cooked Pork Sausages Recalled

Little Rock, AR (SafetyAlerts) - Odom’s Tennessee Pride is voluntarily recalling approximately 4,900 pounds of frozen sausage links that may be contaminated with plastic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.

The products being recalled are 12 lb. boxes of "Alliant PRESTIGE Cooked Pork Sausage Skinless Links." Each box bears a production code of "0206-1L 1171 14117A," and "EST. 6544A" appears on the label inside the USDA seal of inspection.

"FSIS ensures that meat and poultry products are safe, wholesome, and accurately labeled," said Thomas J. Billy, FSIS administrator. "Purchasers or consumers of sausage links may wish to ask establishments where they consume sausage links if the product or meal contains the recalled product."
