Nearly 30,000 pounds of pork sausage has been recalled after an allergen was discovered in the product that was not on the label.
The Wisconsin-based manufacturer, Mekong Fresh Meats, announced the recall after government inspectors from the U.S. Department of Agriculture found wheat in the product. The company’s owner released a statement that said that the product is found in the oyster sauce that the meat is cooked in.
The sauce is bought from another company and Mekong was unaware that it was used. The sausage affected in the recall are the items that were produced between June 21 and Sept. 21. The USDA reports that illness associated with the product is low.
