Abe's Cajun Smoked Sausage Recalled for Possible Contamination

Sulpher, LA (SafetyAlerts) - Abe's Cajun Boudin, Inc. is recalling approximately 1270 pounds of smoked sausage because the product may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said today.

The recalled product is "Abe's Cajun Smoked Sausage (Pork and Beef)."  The recalled sausage was packed in one and five pound vacuum packages and in ten pound bulk packages.  These vacuum packages were sold to retailers in Calcasieu Parish in Louisiana and in Houston, Texas.  There were also boxes containing two, 5 pound packages distributed to institutional food services such as hotels and restaurants in the same areas.

Each package label bears "EST 13251" inside the USDA mark of inspection.  Those packages sold to retail outlets are labeled "SELL BY 12-27-99 while those sent to institutional food service programs bear "SELL BY 11-27-99."

Consuming products that contain Listeria bacteria can cause Listeriosis, a disease which usually causes mild flu-like symptoms in healthy individuals.  However, Listeriosis could be life threatening to individuals with weakened immune systems, the elderly and may result in still-births in pregnant women.

Consumers with questions may call Tim LeBleu, plant manager, at 318-527-8350.
