Summer is here and the backyard grilling season is underway. Yes, we love to cook out, so it's always a bummer when we need to report a meat recall.

Johnsonville is recalling 95,000 pounds of smoke sausages due to the possibility of some small hard pieces of plastic that may have been found in the ready-to-eat Jalapeno Cheddar Smoke Sausage.

The company produced and packaged the sausages on March 12 and March 13, 2019 and shipped them nationwide. According to the USDA,  the recall affects the 14-oz. 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.

The problem was discovered when the company notified FSIS that they received a consumer complaint regarding green hard plastic in the product
