DETROIT (WWJ) – If you shop at Trader Joe’s, you’ll want to pay attention to this recall — especially if you have a food allergy.
Approximately 3,500 pounds of Trader Joe’s Chicken Breakfast Sausage is being recalled because of misbranding and undeclared allergens. The recalled product was sold in several states — however, Michigan is not included in the recall.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service says the sausage contains soy lecithin, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.
The only item included in the recall is a 1-lb. vacuum-sealed packages containing 5 pieces of Trader Joe’s Chicken Breakfast Sausage with an establishment number “P-4398” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The items were produced by Massachusetts-base DiLuigi Foods and packaged from Aug. 10, 2017 to Aug. 24, 2017.
The problem was discovered during routine FSIS label verification activities.
