The USDA issued two major meat recalls this weekend involving Johnsonville Sausage and Perdue Chicken.

The Johnsonville recall is focused on their Jalapeno Cheddar Smoked Sausage product. The recall was issued because some of the sausages may contain pieces of hard green plastic. You can see the specifics of the USDA recall here. The USDA website describes the packages as such,

14-oz. film, vacuum packages containing “Johnsonville JALAPEÑO CHEDDAR Smoked Sausage” with a “Best By 06/09/2019” date on the back of the package. The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 34224” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped nationwide and internationally.

Customers are advised to throw the packages away, or return them to the point of purchase for a refund.
