US firm recalls sausages over possible Listeria contamination

  
  

T. Piekutowski European Style Sausage has announced a voluntary recall of approximately 750 pounds of sausage products amid concerns of possible Listeria contamination, USDA confirmed.


The sausage products manufactured on December 18 were sold at the establishment's retail counter in St. Louis, Missouri on December 18 and 19.


The USDA emphasised the recalled sausage products include all sizes of Krakow sausages sold, wrapped in unmarked butcher paper carrying no establishment number or a USDA mark of inspection.


Listeria monocytogenes, a bacterium responsible for an uncommon fatal disease, listeriosis, is commonly found in soil, vegetation, meat, unpasteurised milk and poultry products.
