Rubber pieces found in Johnsonville turkey kielbasa; recall issued

BALTIMORE, MD—Approximately 35,430 pounds of Johnsonville turkey kielbasa sausage has been recalled due to the discovery of pieces of rubber, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) said in a press release on Friday.

The recall affects 12-ounce vacuum-packed packages with a best-by date of “05/17/24” or “05/18/24,” printed on the side of the packaging. The packages also bear the establishment number “P-32009.”

According to the FSIS, the problem was discovered after consumers reported finding pieces of rubber in the ready-to-eat turkey kielbasa products. While there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions or injury, FSIS is concerned that some customers may still be storing the product in their refrigerators.

Anyone who has purchased one of the products is urged to not consume it and to dispose of it or return it to the place of purchase. The FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to make sure that the notified firms are taking the proper steps to ensure that the products are no longer available to consumers. The recall can be found here.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Johnsonville at 888-556-2728.
