Johnsonville, LLC., is recalling over 95,000 pounds of its ready-to-eat jalapeño cheddar smoked sausage products because it may be contaminated with extraneous material.

The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service said Friday that the sausages were in 14-oz. film, vacuum packages with a "Best By 06/09/2019" date.


The sausages were shipped nationwide and internationally, the USDA said, and officials are concerned they may contain hard green plastic.

The problem was discovered after the company received a consumer complaint, according to the USDA. So far, there haven't been any confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the products.

If you have an item affected by a recall, you should throw it away or return it to the place of purchase.

Johnsonville is headquartered in Sheboygan, Wis.
