22 tons of sausages recalled from the US market

Eddy Packing, a meat processor based in Yoakum, Texas, has recalled more than 22.5 tons of smoked sausages due to a possible foreign matter contamination, announced the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The incident is classified as a high health risk situation after a restaurant complained about the fact that pieces of white, hard plastic were found embedded in the sausage during slicing.
The smoked sausage items were originally processed on April 5, 2018, with packing dates of April 5-6, 2018, and there were shipped to food services and retailers in California, Georgia, Illinois, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.
