About 410,985 pounds of H-E-B brand beef brisket smoked sausage products have been recalled due to a mislabeled ingredient list.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the products contain a pork casing, which is not listed on the product label.

While there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions from the product, the USDA says the casing may cause an allergic reaction to some consumers.

J Bar B Foods, the supplier of the product, was informed of the mislabeling on June 12 when a customer asked about the pork casing, which was not included in the list of ingredients.

The recall includes the sausage produced on various dates between June 21, 2016 and May 29, 2018. It is 12-ounce vacuum-packed packages labeled "H-E-B TEXAS HERITAGE SAUSAGE SMOKED WITH NATURAL HARDWOOD BEEF BRISKET."

The USDA urges consumers with the product to throw the sausage away or return it to the place of purchase.
