FSIS issued an alert for ready to eat sausages due to Listeria monocytogenes

The USDA-FSIS issued an alert for Bluegrass Provisions Co., (Crescent Springs, KY) that produced sausage products that may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. A recall was not requested because it is believed that all products are no longer in commerce and are past their use or freeze by dates. The products include BLUE GRASS METTWURST, WALNUT CREEK FOODS Smoked Sausage, SMOKED BRATWURST, and SMOKED BRATWURST WITH CHEESE. The products were shipped to distributors and retail locations in Kentucky, Ohio, North Carolina, and Virginia. The problem was discovered by routine testing, and the results showed one of the products was contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. The additional products may be affected by cross-contamination. FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase. FSIS advises all consumers to reheat ready-to-eat products until steaming hot. @ https://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsis/topics/recalls-and-public-health-alerts/current-recalls-and-alerts/!ut/p/a1/jY_BCoJAGISfxQdY9jdF9CgLlpa7iGS2l1hMTdhWWa1DT5_SyUhy_tPAN_MzmOMccyWeTS2GplVCTp47F0jAMT0CEQv8AEJqBZlLtyYwZwTOM8AzJyBL2J4QcKm1Mr8gH_7loxUPNjomcY15J4YbalTV4rx4aF2qAemyEFL2SKgrErLUQ49PmM87wRxv7EztXUQtYPY38GP0B1he1d2P-etQpWFtGG85uhP2/?1dmy&current=true&urile=wcm%3apath%3a%2Ffsis-content%2Finternet%2Fmain%2Fnewsroom%2Fnews-releases-statements-and-transcripts%2Fnews-release-archives-by-year%2Farchive%2F2020%2Fpha-08072020-01
