Tennessee Establishment Recalls Pork Products Because Of Undeclared Ingredient

WASHINGTON, Jan. 24, 2002—Jimmy Dean Foods Inc., a Newbern, Tenn., establishment, is voluntarily recalling approximately 3,600 pounds of frozen pork sausage products because they contain undeclared monosodium glutamate (MSG), the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.

MSG is used as a flavor enhancer in a variety of foods prepared at home, in restaurants, and by food processors. Some persons who have eaten foods containing MSG have reported adverse reactions.

The products being recalled are 12 lb. bulk cases of "Jimmy Dean Maple Flavored PORK SAUSAGE LINKS." The cases each bear a production code "3139-1," "3209-1," "3289-1," or "1120-2," as well as the establishment code "EST. 8080" located inside the USDA seal of inspection.

The products were produced on Dec. 13, 2001, Dec. 20, 2001, Dec. 28, 2001, and Jan. 12, 2002, and distributed to food service establishments in North Carolina, Tennessee, Ohio, South Carolina, New York, Georgia and Minnesota.

"FSIS wants consumers to be aware of the recall," said Margaret O’K. Glavin, FSIS acting administrator. "Diners who have concerns about MSG may wish to ask if their meals contain the recalled products."

The problem was discovered and reported to FSIS by Jimmy Dean Foods.

Media with questions about the recall may contact Julie Ketay, director of media relations, at (312) 558-8727. Customers with questions about the recall may contact Patty Welsh, customer relations, at (901) 758-6662.
