Meat sold at Walmart recalled due to salmonella risk

News

AUGUSTA, Ga. (CNN) – Some frozen sausage patties sold at Walmart are being pulled off the shelves because of possible salmonella contamination.

George’s Prepared Foods, based in Caryville, Tennessee, is recalling more than 6,000 pounds of ready-to-eat pork and turkey sausage patty products.

The problem was discovered when the firm notified the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service that the firm’s third-party cold storage facility had inadvertently shipped the ready-to-eat products to stores.

There haven’t been any reports of anyone getting sick.

If you have any of the recalled sausages, you should discard or return them.
