North Country Smokehouse of Claremont, N.H. is recalling approximately 2,601 pounds of pork sausage products due to misbranding, the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Tuesday.
The product has a gluten-free claim represented on the front of the label; however, the product contains gluten in the form of wheat. Wheat, which is an allergen, is also listed in the product’s list of ingredients.
The ready-to-eat pork banger sausage items were produced on February 13, 2019. The products subject to recall are 12-oz. vacuum-sealed packages containing four pieces of “North Country Smokehouse Natural Irish Brand Banger Sausage” with a use-by date of 04/15/19 on the package.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 5390A” inside the USDA mark of inspection. Although there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products, anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ refrigerators or freezers or both. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
