A meat producer attracts more than 11,000 pounds of sausage because of concerns about metals in meat.
On Sunday, R. L. Zeigler Co. announced it would withdraw 11,664 pounds of poultry and meat sausage products for fear they might contain pieces of metal.
The company is recalling chicken sausage items and Red Hot RTE pork produced on November 29. The 24-ounce Red Hot sausage package has been used on January 24, 2019.
R. L. Zeigler was informed of a potential problem after two customers complained after receiving contaminated products in December. So far, there have been no confirmed reports of diseases or adverse reactions to sausages.
Earlier in December, CTI Foods LLC withdrew around 29,028 pounds of Jimmy Dean sausage for fear of containing metal scrap. The US Department of Agriculture found a problem with Jimmy Dean sausages when it was notified that CTI Foods had received five complaints from people about pieces of metal at the sausage link.
