Perdue Foods recalled more than 1,400 24-ounce packages of chicken sausage that might contain bits of plastic.
The recalled product is Perdue Harvestland Organic Italian Chicken Sausage. The package code is 64405 and the sell-by or freeze-by date is June 25.
The company recalled the product after three consumers have complained of finding blue plastic in sausage links.
“We determined the source was plastic from a pair of safety goggles that was inadvertently introduced into the raw material before the sausages were stuffed,” said Andrea Staub, a senior vice president of Perdue Farms, parent company of Perdue Foods.
“This would have resulted in a minimal amount of consumer packages potentially containing sausages with the plastic. However, out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to recall all packages of sausages produced in the same product run.”
Consumers who bought the chicken were urged to throw the product away or return it to the store where it was purchased.
