Recalled Johnsonville pork patties may contain rubber
Wisconsin-based Johnsonville, LLC, has recalled more than 48,000 pounds of flavored raw pork patties because they may be contaminated with black rubber.
The frozen ground pork patties, packaged in 24-ounce cartons, are labeled “Johnsonville Grillers Cheddar Cheese & Bacon Flavor.” Produced on Sept. 27 and Oct. 17 and 18, they are printed with “best flavor by” dates of July 24, Aug. 13 or Aug. 14, 2019.
Shipped to retail locations across the nation, the recalled items bear the establishment number 34225, printed on the end of the carton.
Officials with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service learned Thursday that Johnsonville received three complaints from consumers who found black rubber in the product. There were no confirmed reports of adverse reactions from eating the patties.
Consumers were advised to throw away the product or return it to the place of purchase.
Questions about the recall may be directed to Johnsonville Consumer Relations at 888-556-2728.
