USDA Issues Recall For Sausage Products Contaminated With Listeria

WASHINGTON, D.C. (KDKA) — The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Safety Inspection Service has announced a recall for sausage.


Ezzo Sausage Company, from Columbus, is recalling more than 25,000 pounds of sausage possibly contaminated with Listeria.


The products recalled were produced on October 29, 30 and November 5, 2019. These items were shipped to distribution centers in Indiana and Ohio and have an establishment number “EST. 1838A”.


The firm notified FSIS after finding a positive sample result for Listeria monocytogenes.


This could cause a serious infection called listeriosis in older adults, persons with a weakened immune system, or pregnant women and their newborns.


Anyone concerned should go to the hospital, but no reports have been made from the consumption of these products.
