Sara Lee Recalls 41 Tons of Smoked Sausage
NEW LONDON, Wis. (AP) — Sara Lee Foodservice in New London, Wisconsin, is recalling 41 tons of smoked sausage due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture says the product was made with an ingredient called hydrolyzed soy protein, a known allergen that wasn't listed on the label.
The product is called "Smoked Sausage Rope." It's sold in 10-pound cases containing two 5-pound packages.
The sausage was sent to distribution centers to be shipped to institutional users across the country. It's not available in grocery stores or sold directly to consumers.
Neither the USDA's food-safety division nor the company has received any reports of adverse reactions from eating the product.
