New Albany, Ohio-headquartered Bob Evans Farms is recalling approximately 4,200 pounds of raw frozen pork sausage that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically thin blue rubber, the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced on January 22.
The 10 oz. (453g) Bob Evans Italian Sausage chub packs in question, which have lot code 0352, a “USE/FRZ BY” date of “JAN 31 21” and “EST 6785 on the label, were produced on December 17, 2020 at the company’s Xenia, Ohio plant. They were shipped to retail stores in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
Upon receiving consumer complaints about the problem, the company quickly notified FSIS and advised consumers concerned about an injury or illness to immediately contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS is concerned that some product may still be in home refrigerators or freezers. Consumers who have purchased the Bob Evans Italian Sausage chub packs are urged to throw them away or returned them to the place of purchase for a refund.
