WASHINGTON, Oct. 25, 2019 – Taylor’s Sausage Inc., a Cave Junction, Ore. establishment, is recalling approximately 1,086 pounds of ready-to-eat meat and poultry sausage products because the products may be misbranded and contain a pork casing or a sheep casing that were not declared on the product label, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The ready-to-eat meat and poultry sausage items were packaged from June 26, 2019, though Oct. 10, 2019. The following products are subject to recall: [View labels (PDF only)]
