Johnsonville Grillers Cheddar Cheese & Bacon Flavor 24-ounce carton

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.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
