Some Jimmy Dean sausage recalled due to metal concern
OWINGSVILLE, KY — CTI Foods LLC, a co-manufacturer that has produced Jimmy Dean sausage, says they are voluntarily recalling a small amount of the Heat ‘n Serve Original Sausage Links.
The company says a few people had contacted the company to report they had found small, string-like fragments of metal in the product.
According to the recall, though the fragments have been found in a very limited number of packages, out of an abundance of caution, CTI is recalling around 29,000 pounds of sausage.
Jimmy Dean says they are monitoring the recall, and working with CTI and the USDA.
