On May 4, a recall was issued by Eddy Packaging Co., Inc. from Yoakum, Texas that has affected 49,558 pounds of smoked sausage! The food is being recalled after restaurants who used their products noticed white, hard plastic embedded in the sausages.

The smoked sausages were sold in California, Georgia, Illinois, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas to restaurants and retail shops. They all have an establishment number of “EST. 4800” stamped inside of the USDA mark of inspection, and they were processed on April 5, 2018, with a packaging date of April 5-6, 2018.

The sausages affected by the recall include:
