Frozen Meat Sold at Walmart Recalled due to Salmonella Contamination.
More than 6,400 pounds of frozen meat sold at Walmart is being recalled due to a possible salmonella contamination.
The manufacturer for Walmart’s Great Value frozen, fully cooked meat, says that the frozen products were supposed to be disposed of when a small batch of the food tested positive for salmonella. Instead, they were shipped nationwide.
According to the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, the recall includes packages of:
- Great Value Fully Cooked Original Pork Sausage Patties, 24.92-oz with a use-by date of 10/16/19 and lot code: 1091971894
- Great Value Fully Cooked Original Breakfast Turkey Patties, 24.92-oz with a use-by date of 10/24/19 and lot code: 1171971897
- Family Size Great Value Fully Cooked Original Pork Sausage Patties, 35.6-oz with use-by dates: 11/03/19 and 11/05/19 and lot codes: 1271972894 and 1291972894
The numbers “EST. M2206T” or “P-2260T” are printed on the recalled products’ packaging.
There have been no reports of illness at this time.
The products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
Salmonella is a bacteria that can cause a serious infection. The elderly, children and those with weak immune systems can have serious and even fatal complications.
If you have eaten the recalled product and are experiencing any of these symptoms, seek medical attention right away.
