(Before It's News)

Minnesota’s Rochester Meat Co. has recalled more than 6 tons pounds of pork sausage products because of misbranding, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The pork sausage contains monosodium glutamate (MSG), but the ingredient is not declared on the product labels.

The raw, pork sausage products were produced on various dates from Nov. 14, 2016, through Feb. 3, this year. The 13,330 pounds of recalled sausage can be identified by the following packaging information:

  • 10-pound bulk boxes containing 40 patties per box of Rochester Meat Co. “Pork Sausage Patties,” bearing the case code 10012724390418.
  • 10-pound bulk boxes containing 50 patties per box of Rochester Meat Co. “Pork Sausage Patties,” bearing the case code 10012724390517.
  • 10-pound bulk boxes containing 80 patties per box of Rochester Meat Co. “Pork Sausage Patties,” bearing the case code 1002724390029.
  • 10-pound bulk boxes containing 50 patties per box of Rochester Meat Co. “Pork Sausage Patties NAT,” bearing the case code 1002724390036.
  • 10-pound bulk boxes containing 160 1-ounce links of Rochester Meat Co. “Pork Sausage Links,” bearing the case code 1002724391002.

The pork products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 8999” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to institutional locations in Indiana, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

The mistake was discovered March 2 by company personnel during routine label reviews. FSIS was notified on that same date.

There’s not yet been any confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Debbie Green, Customer Service Manager, at 618-857-4011.
