Over 6,000 pounds of ready-to-eat Great Value breakfast sausage and turkey patties are being recalled nationwide due to possible salmonella contamination.

The recalled was issued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The problem was discovered when George's Prepared Foods was notified that their third-party storage facility inadvertently shipped the products to commerce, according to the recall release.

The ready-to-eat pork and sausage patties were produced on April 19, April 27, May 7 and May 9, 2019.

The products being recalled have the establishment numbers: “EST. M2206T or P-2260T” printed on the package.

These recalled items were shipped to retail locations nationwide:

  • 24.92-oz. packages containing “Great Value Fully Cooked Original Pork Sausage Patties” with use by date of 10/16/19 and lot code 1091971894.
  • 24.92-oz. packages containing “Great Value Fully Cooked Original Breakfast Turkey Patties” with use by date of 10/24/19 and lot code 1171971897.

These products should not be consumed. The FSIS is concerned that some of the products "may be frozen and in consumers’ refrigerators or freezers or both."

Salmonella symptoms can include diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps.

No illnesses have been reported at this time. However, the FSIS classfied the recall as a Class I out of III.

A Class I recall is defined as a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.

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