The sausage products bear the establishment number "8921" inside the State of Minnesota mark of inspection and had a date of 10/26/2018 on the label.

There have been no reports of illnesses caused by consumption of the meat, but inspectors found it had been processed in a way that could result in a listeria contamination.
