A consumer sausage product manufactured in Grand Rapids, Mich that was distributed in California has been recalled. 

Yesterday the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Kent Quality Foods, Inc., is recalling approximately 48,681 pounds of ready-to-eat polish sausage with beef products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically pieces of flexible pink rubber,

The ready-to-eat polish sausage with beef items were packaged on June 17, 2019 and June 20, 2019. The following products are subject to recall:
  • 36-oz. packages containing three 12 oz. individually wrapped pieces of “TETON WATERS RANCH COOKED UNCURED POLISH SAUSAGE MADE WITH BEEF” with a Use/Freeze By SEP 16 2019 or Use/Freeze By SEP 19 2019.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 5694” on the product packaging. These items were shipped to retail locations in California and Utah.

The problem was discovered when the firm received two complaints of extraneous materials from retailers on July 17, 2019 and July 18, 2019.
