Along with the automotive recalls we've had so far this year, there were also recalls for cookies, chicken, barbies, drills, flour, infant medicine, fruit, canned spaghetti, tattoos and even marijuana.  As you can see, the majority of recalls will almost certainly be food and the latest recall is no exception.

In an article on wilx.com, the latest recall is not a new one.  Once again it's sausage.  In this case Johnsonville ready-to-eat jalapeno cheddar smoked sausages have been recalled due to the potential presence of "extraneous material" according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety And Inspection Service.  About 95,000 pounds that were packaged between March 12 and 13 may be contaminated with "hard green plastic" pieces.  For clarity, the following products are included in the recall:  -14-oz. film, vacuum packages containing “Johnsonville JALAPEÑO CHEDDAR Smoked Sausage” with a “Best By 06/09/2019” date on the back of the package.  The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 34224” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped nationwide and internationally.
