Some sausage patties sold at Walmart recalled over salmonella fears
Some frozen sausage patties sold at Walmart are being pulled off the shelves because of possible salmonella contamination.
George's Prepared Foods, based in Caryville, Tennessee, is recalling more than 6,000 pounds of ready-to-eat pork and turkey sausage patty products. They were listed as:
- 24.92-oz. packages containing “Great Value Fully Cooked Original Pork Sausage Patties” with use by date of 10/16/19 and lot code 1091971894.
- 24.92-oz. packages containing “Great Value Fully Cooked Original Breakfast Turkey Patties” with use by date of 10/24/19 and lot code 1171971897.
- 35.6-oz. packages containing “Family Size Great Value Fully Cooked Original Pork Sausage Patties” with use by date of 11/03/19 and lot code 1271972894 or use by date 11/05/19 and lot code 1291972894.
The problem was discovered when the company notified the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service that the firm's third-party cold storage facility had inadvertently shipped the ready-to-eat products to stores.
There haven't been any reports of anyone getting sick.
If you have any of the recalled sausages, you should discard or return them. More information about the recall is available
