( Farm Journal's PORK )

R. L. Zeigler Co., Inc., is recalling nearly 12,000 pounds of ready-to-eat poultry and meat sausage products that may be contaminated with metal, the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Sunday. 

The company, located in Selma, Ala., said the following products are subject to recall: 24-oz. plastic packages containing approximately nine links of “Zeigler A Tradition of Great Taste Red Hots” with a “Use By Jan 24 19” date and 24-oz. plastic packages containing approximately nine links of “Extra Hot Zeigler A Tradition of Great Taste Red Hots” with a “Use By Jan 24 19” date.

The RTE Red Hot chicken and pork sausage items were produced on Nov. 29, 2018. The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. P-9156S” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.

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 frozen and in consumers’ freezers. 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.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Jeff Berry at R. L. Zeigler Co., Inc. at (334) 410-9845.
