Minnesota included in Johnsonville pork patty recall

The company has issued a recall of its "Cheddar Cheese & Bacon Grillers"

If you've recently bought any pork products from Johnsonville, you might want to check your freezer.

On Friday, the Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin-based sausage maker issued a voluntary recall for a line of its frozen pork patties, Cheddar Cheese & Bacon Grillers.

The reason? Rubber.

The product "may contain small, black pieces of rubber," Johnsonville said; however, there's no word on how the rubber might have ended up in the patties.

There have been "three reported incidents," presumably of customers finding the rubber in the meat, but the company says there are no reports of injuries or illness.

"Even though we believe the human health risk to be minimal, we take no chances when it comes to protecting our consumers’ health and safety," a news release says. 

How to tell if you bought this product

The recall concerns 24 oz. packages of Cheddar Cheese & Bacon Grillers, but only those with the following "Best Flavor By" dates are affected: 

  • 07/24/2019 and the EST (USDA Establishment number) 34225
  • 08/13/2019 and the EST 34225
  • 08/14/2019 and the EST 34225

Johnsonville is asking anyone who purchased these items to return them to the store where they were purchased for a full refund, or contact Johnsonville by calling or texting 1-888-556-2728.

It goes without saying that the patties should not be eaten.

The products were sold in 31 states, including Minnesota.
