Sunset Farm Foods said it produced the smoked sausage included in the recall on June 30, 2022, and said the meat products were sold in retail stores in Alabama, Florida, Georgia and North Carolina.

The problem was discovered when the establishment reported to FSIS that it received consumer complaints that thin blue plastic was embedded inside the pork and chicken sausage product, FSIS said.
