Almost 200,000 pounds of Vienna sausage and other chicken sausage products, including some packaged under Wal-Mart’s Great Value brand, are under recall because they contain monosodium glutamate (MSG) that is not declared on their labels.

Century Packing Corp., based in Las Piedras, Puerto Rico, distributed the products to retailers and institutional foodservice operations, including schools, in Florida and Puerto Rico, according to the recall notice posted on the USDA’s Food Safety ad inspection Service (FSIS) website.

“The problem was discovered on Feb. 9, by FSIS Inspection Program Personnel (IPP) while performing routine label verification activities,” according to the recall notice.

“The IPP observed that the MSG ingredient, included in the bouillon seasoning used in the formulation of multiple chicken sausage products, was not declared on the finished chicken sausage packaging labels.There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.”

Century Packing reports the recalled products were produced from Jan. 1, 2015 through Feb. 13 this year. All of the recalled products have the establishment number “P-7375” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

Consumers and others can identify the recalled products by looking for the following label information:

  • 2.78-oz. pouches of “Great Value Minis – Bites of Chicken Sausage and Bouillon” with Packaging Dates of “01/01/2015 – 02/13/2017”
  • 10-oz. pouches of “Great Value Minis – Bites of Chicken Sausage and Bouillon” with Packaging Dates of “01/01/2015 – 02/13/2017”
