Jimmy Dean issues voluntary recall

The maker of Jimmy Dean Heat ’n Serve Original Sausage Links sent out a voluntary recall of more than 14 tons of its frozen, ready-to-eat sausage links because they may have pieces of metal inside.

The recall was issued on Monday, Dec. 11. Below is the recall announcement –

A few consumers contacted the company to say they had found small, string-like fragments of metal in the product. Though the fragments have been found in a very limited number of packages, out of an abundance of caution, CTI is recalling 29,028 pounds of product. Jimmy Dean is closely monitoring this recall and working with CTI to assure proper coordination with the USDA.  No injuries have been reported with this recall.

Approximately 2,845 cases of this product were produced at one plant location on August 4, 2018.

Consumers who have purchased any of the affected items should cut the UPC and date code from the packaging, discard the product and call 1-855-382-3101.
