J.H. Routh Packing Co., of Sandusky, Ohio, recently issued a recall of almost one ton of raw pork sausage over concerns that it may be contaminated with rubber.

The potentially contaminated sausage was shipped to retailers throughout Kentucky, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, and there is some concern that the products may already be in refrigerators belonging to consumers. If you have any of the recalled sausage, you should either throw it away or return it for a refund.

To better identify whether the sausage in your refrigerator is affected, check the label. According to the recall notice, the recalled meat is “labeled under the ‘Daisyfield Brand’ and called either fresh pork sausage or Italian sausage.” Additionally, the products “bear establishment number ‘EST. 818’ inside the USDA mark of inspection.” Additional details can be found here. If you have further questions about the recall, contact Tony Stearns at at 419-626-2251. Stearns is the director of sales at J.H. Routh.
