Recall Notification Report 077-2012 | USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service

Tri City Cheese and Meats, a Kawkawlin, Mich., establishment, is recalling approximately 271 pounds of Jalape?o Vienna sausage products because they are misbranded in that they contain monosodium glutamate (MSG), which is not declared on the label, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.

The following product is subject to recall: [View Label]

  • “1- and 2.5-lb. Cryovac bags of “Troll Smokehouse Fully Cooked Jalape?o Vienna.”

The product subject to recall bears the establishment number “EST. 32015″ inside the USDA mark of inspection. This product was produced Oct. 18, 2012 through Nov. 6, 2012, and packages have a sell by date of “12/17/12″ through “01/03/12.” The product was distributed to retail establishments in Michigan.

The problem was discovered by FSIS personnel during a routine label review. MSG is a sub-ingredient in the spice blend used to make the product, but it was not listed on the final product label. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks (including at restaurants) to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and to ensure that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.

Consumers and media with questions about the recall should contact Sarah David at (989) 686-3210.
