Frozen sausage patties recalled for possible salmonella contamination

CARYVILLE, Tenn. (CNN) — Some frozen sausage patties
sold at Walmart are being pulled off the shelves because of possible salmonella
contamination. George’s Prepared Foods, based in Caryville, Tennessee is
recalling more than six-thousand pounds of ready-to-eat pork and turkey sausage
patty products.

The problem was discovered when the firm notified the U.S. Department
of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service that the firm’s third-party
cold storage facility had inadvertently shipped the ready-to-eat products to
stores. The products were shipped to stores nationwide.

There haven’t been any reports of anyone getting sick. If you
have any of the recalled sausages, you should discard or return them. You can
get more information about the recall at the USDA’s website.
