Several sausage products have been recalled by a Minnesota company after finding they may have contaminated with listeria.

Minnesota Department of Agriculture inspectors found the contamination during routine sampling of sausage meat from Ruck's Meat Processing, based in Belle Plaine.

As a result, it has recalled four sausage and bologna products that had been sold to Minnesota's Largest Candy Store, in Jordan, and at the Minneapolis Farmer's Market.

Here are the affected products:

  • Ring Bologna: Sold from Ruck's Processing's retail store in Belle Plaine and sold to Minnesota's Largest Candy Store.
  • Tollefson Family Pork-branded Smoked Polish Sausage, Rex's Smoked Breakfast Sausage and Smoked Breakfast Sausage sold at the Minneapolis Farmer's Market.

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.

Anyone who has one of the products should throw it away or return it to where they bought it.
