Trader Joe’s Recalls 59,203 Pounds Of Chicken Sausage After Plastic Bits Discovered


If you’re a fan of Trader Joe’s Sweet Apple Chicken Sausage, you might want to check your refrigerator. Kayem Foods, the supplier of the breakfast meat, issued a recall of 59,203 pounds on Monday.

It was discovered that there was a possible contamination with the sausage where it contained pieces of plastic. Two customers discovered little bits of plastic in the sausages and contacted Kayem. This led to an investigation that led to the recall.

Any product with the establishment number P7839 in the USDA inspection marks will be recalled. The US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service instruct consumers to look out for brands with the case code 9605 that use freeze/by dates of April 22, 25 and 29, 2015.

The Al Fresco brand of Apple Maple Fully Cooked Breakfast Chicken Sausage that come in 8 ounces will also be subject to a recall. These include products with the case code 9709 and freeze/by dates of June 13 and 20, 2015.

Although it was declared a “low health risk,” nobody wants to eat plastic for breakfast. As of now, there have been no reported cases of illness or injury from the plastic.
