The New Jersey product liability attorneys at Breslin and Breslin are reporting that a meat manufacturer has recalled 16 tons of fully-cooked chicken sausage, which was sold in New Jersey grocery stores and several other states, because of misbranding and undeclared allergens.
Massachusetts-based Demakes Enterprises Inc. is recalling 32,228 pounds of its Thin ‘n Trim Fully Cooked Chicken Sausage Buffalo Style after U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service officials discovered the problem during routine label inspections.
The product contains milk, a known allergen, which was not declared on the product label as required by federal law.
The mislabeled sausage was also shipped to stores in Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
