Puerto Rico company hit by 453t chicken sausage recall

Records show schools have bought the chicken sausages linked with the recall

Century Packing Corporation has recalled 453 tonnes (999,419 pounds) of thermally processed, commercially sterile, chicken sausage products due to misbranding.

The affected products contain monosodium glutamate (MSG) that was not declared on labelling, the US Department of Agriculture’s (USDA’s) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has announced.

The chicken sausage products from the Las Piedras, Puerto Rico establishment were produced from 1 January 2015 to 13 February 2017.

The recalled products:

• 2.78-oz. pouches of Great Value Minis – Bites of Chicken Sausage and Bouillon with packaging dates of 01/01/2015 – 02/13/2017

Schools

The products subject to recall bear establishment number P-7375 inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped for retail and institutional use in Florida and Puerto Rico. According to Century Packing records, schools have bought products associated with this recall through the company’s commercial channels.

The problem was discovered on 9 February 2017 by FSIS Inspection Program Personnel (IPP) while performing routine label verification activities. The IPP observed that the MSG ingredient, included in the bouillon seasoning used in the formulation of multiple chicken sausage products, was not declared on the finished chicken sausage packaging labels.

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.
