As of January 21, 2021, Bob Evans Farms, Inc. is recalling approximately 4,200 pounds of pork sausage product that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically thin blue rubber, the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.

The raw, pork sausage item was produced on December 17, 2020. The following products are subject to recall:

  • 1-lb. chubs containing “Bob Evans Italian Sausage” with lot code 0352 and a “USE/FRZ BY” date of “JAN 31 21” represented on the label.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 6785” printed directly above the “USE/FRZ BY” date. These items were shipped to retail locations in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

The problem was discovered when Bob Evans notified FSIS that they received consumer complaints.

Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

This is a USDA Class II Recall: “This is a health hazard situation where there is a remote probability of adverse health consequences from the use of the product.”

FSIS is concerned that some product may be in customers’ refrigerators or freezers or both. Those who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase. FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to customers.

Customers and members of the media with questions about the recall can contact Alison Emery, Director of Communications, Bob Evans Farms Inc. at 614.778.1886 or email Bob Evans Foods.
