All the Foods Being Recalled — Including These Sausages

If there was one thing we learned in 2018, it’s that in spite of rigid food and safety standards, food recalls happen — and they happen frequently (we’re looking at you, romaine lettuce). There is a good reason for all of these recalls, of course. Mistakes can (and do) happen. But whether a product is pulled due to contamination, possible contamination, mislabeling and/or the usage of undeclared ingredients doesn’t matter. What matters is that you are aware of said recall when it happens. Because, lets face it — your health depends on it.

So, how do you know which products to toss, which products to keep and which ones to avoid? Well, in order to help keep you abreast of all the latest recall information, we compiled a handy list of all this year’s food recall data.

Note: This article is constantly being updated. For the most accurate and up-to-date information about food recalls, be sure to check with the FDA, the USDA, the CDC and/or each individual supplier.

R.L. Zeigler Sausages

On Dec. 30, 2018, R.L. Zeigler recalled more than 11,000 pounds of ready-to-eat sausage, as the links may contain extraneous materials, including metal. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the affected products were produced on Nov. 29, 2018, and include 24-ounce plastic packages of Zeigler Red Hots and Zeiger Extra Hot Red Hots.

Potentially contaminated packs will also be marked with establishment number “EST. P-9156S” and have a use-by date of Jan. 24, 2019.  

If you have any affected products, the USDA urges you to discard them immediately and/or return them to their place of purchase.
