Southside Market and Barbecue of Elgin, located in Central Texas approximately 20 miles east of Austin, has issued a voluntary recall of more than one ton of its ready-to-eat sausage items because of a potential listeria contamination originally found in the course of regular product testing, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Approximately 2,373 pounds of sausage, including the 16 ounce packages of Southside Market & Barbeque 1882 Hot Recipe Beef Sausage, lot number 065-D, Southside Market & Barbeque Original Beef Sausage, lot number 065-E, and 16 ounce and 48 ounce packages of Southside Market & Barbeque Original Beef Sausage, lot numbers 065-A, 065-B, 065-C, and 065-D, are affected by the recall. The meat products that are potentially contaminated were sold throughout the state of Texas and via the internet in the states of Louisiana, Illinois, Florida, and California. These products were fully cooked and smoked in March 5 at the company’s Elgin location. According to the Department of Agriculture, no incidences of illness have currently been reported. Consumers in possession of the affected products should contact the company immediately for further instructions.
As a Bakersfield personal injury lawyer, I hope this food recall is conducted in time to prevent any illness or other difficulties.
