Bob Evans recalls over 7K pounds of contaminated pork sausage product

An Ohio food company has recalled thousands of pounds of product that is contaminated with thin blue rubber.

Bob Evans Farms Foods, Inc. confirmed 7,560 pounds of Italian pork sausage contain extraneous materials, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

Produced on Sept. 8, 2022, the one-pound packages should be thrown away or returned to the store from where it was purchased. The items contain lot code XEN3663466 and a use-by date of Nov. 26, 2022, with a time stamp between 14:43 and 15:25.

Shipped worldwide, the items bear establishment number EST. 6785 inside the USDA mark of inspection.                  

Consumers reported complaints of rubber in the products, though there have not been adverse reactions reported due to consumption. Anyone concerned with injury or illness are directed to contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers can call the toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at 888-MPHotline (888-674-6854) from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, with concerns or questions.
