Raw chicken sausage is recalled

Kayem Foods Inc. of Chelsea, Mass., has announced the recall of approximately 35,580 pounds of chicken sausage products because of an undeclared allergen.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said the product label fails to list wheat, a potential known allergen, as an ingredient, thereby posing a threat to those allergic to it.

The one-pound packages of al fresco, mango chipotle and sweet and spicy chicken sausage each bears the establishment number "P-18388" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The chicken sausage products were distributed to retail stores and distribution warehouses in Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maine, Michigan, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia and Wisconsin.

Consumers can contact Kayem's Customer Service Manager Robert Rocco at 617-939-1600 Ext. 224.
