George’s Prepared National Salmonella Lawyer Update: Sausage and Turkey Patties Recalled Due to Potential Salmonella Risks.
George’s Prepared Foods issued a recall on approximately 6,444 pounds of ready-to-eat (RTE) pork sausage patty and turkey sausage patty products due to potential salmonella contamination.
The recall was announced by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) on October 18, 2019. The RTE products were produced from April 19 to April 27, 2019, and May 7 to May 9, 2019. They were shipped to retailers nationwide, and though no reports of people falling ill have been linked to the RTE products, according to national salmonella lawyer Ron Simon, “this is often the case, but people should remember that it takes time for reported illnesses to work their way through the medical and health agencies involved. Although we are hopeful they caught this before anyone became sick, there may be victims who have yet to be identified in this outbreak.”
The products affected by the recall have the establishment number EST. M2206T or P-2260T printed on the package. George’s Prepared Foods, is a company that produces Walmart’s Great Value brand of RTE frozen meat patties. According to the FSIS, the contaminated products were supposed to be destroyed after a small sample group of the products tested positive for salmonella contamination, but a third-party cold storage facility had inadvertently shipped the ready-to-eat products to commerce.
The products affected by the recall are:
The FSIS has voiced their concerns about the contaminated RTE frozen meat products, as they could be in consumer’s refrigerators or freezers without their knowledge. According to national salmonella lawyer Ron Simon, “freezing does NOT kill salmonella bacteria.” The FSIS is advising consumers who purchased any of the recalled products to dispose of them safely, or to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
Consumers who may have purchased the contaminated products and are experiencing symptoms of salmonella such as nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, fever, and chills should contact a medical specialist a soon as they can. According to a national salmonella lawyer, Ron Simon, the infectious dose of Salmonella is very small and can be as small as 15-20 cells. These bacteria subsequently multiply at an alarming rate, causing the manifestation of symptoms.
