(Before It's News)

Klement’s Sausage Company Inc.in Milwaukee Tuesday recalled approximately 1,689 pounds of beef and pork products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The ready to eat beef and pork snack stick products were produced on May 13, 2016. The recall is for:

  • 1-oz. plastic packages containing 2 pieces of “KLEMENT’S ORIGINAL SNACK STICKS NATURALLY HARDWOOD SMOKED NO MSG ADDED GLUTEN FREE” with a sell by date of 11-16-17 and case code of 3262.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 2426B” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to vending distributors in Iowa, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

The problem surfaced with a consumer complaint to the FSIS Des Moines District Office.  The office began an investigation after the complaint came in on Oct. 6, 2016. The FSIS Eastern Laboratory found several additional pieces of foreign material ranging in size from 1 to 4.88 mm in other unopened packages.

The company has received one report of an oral injury associated with consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

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.
