WASHINGTON – Sunset Farm Foods Inc. of Valdosta, Georgia, is recalling approximately 4,480 pounds of chicken and pork smoked sausage products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically thin blue plastic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Wednesday.

The fully cooked chicken and pork smoked sausage items were produced on June 30. The following products are subject to recall:

  • 28-oz. vacuum sealed packages of “Georgia Special Chicken and Pork Smoked Sausage” with a sell by date of 10-28-22.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P 9185” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in Alabama, Florida, Georgia and North Carolina.

The problem was discovered when the establishment reported to FSIS that it received consumer complaints reporting thin blue plastic embedded inside the pork and chicken sausage product.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.  

FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ refrigerators or freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
