Zeigler sausage links recalled for possible metal contamination

Jeff Himler

More than 11,000 pounds of Zeigler hot chicken and pork sausage links have been recalled because of possible contamination with metal.

The items included in the recall are 24-ounce plastic packages of ready-to-eat Zeigler “red hots” and extra hot “red hots” with a use-by date of Jan. 24, 2019. The packages each contain about nine links and were produced on Nov. 29 for nationwide shipment to retailers. They bear establishment number “EST. P-9156S” inside the federal inspection mark.

R. L. Zeigler Co. of Selma, Ala., recalled the links after receiving consumer complaints on Dec. 13 and on Thursday. There were no reports of adverse reactions from consuming the products, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said Sunday.

Officials said the products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
