SANDUSKY — The U.S. Department of Agriculture has recalled more than 1,700 pounds of pork sausage from a Sandusky packing company.

The department’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced raw ground pork and link sausage items produced at J.H. Routh Packing Co. from Jan. 1 until Jan. 4 was contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically rubber.

“We just had a possible contamination of rubber in the products, so we did a recall,” said Jeff Myers, the company’s president of operations. “Obviously, it wasn’t a very big recall. It was only 1,700 pounds.”

The recall includes the following products:

• 5-lb. plastic packages containing loose, bulk “Daisyfield Brand Fresh Pork Sausage”  with production dates Jan. 1-4

• 5-lb. paper-lined cardboard packages containing large link “Daisyfield Brand Fresh Pork Sausage” with production dates Jan. 1-4

• 5-lb. paper-lined cardboard packages containing country-style rope “Daisyfield Brand Fresh Pork Sausage” with production dates Jan. 1-4

• 5-lb. paper-lined cardboard packages containing small, breakfast-style link “Daisyfield Brand Fresh Pork Sausage” with production dates Jan. 1-4

• 5-lb. plastic packages containing loose, bulk “Daisyfield Brand Italian Sausage” with production dates Jan. 1-4

• 5-lb. paper-lined cardboard packages containing large link “Daisyfield Brand Italian Sausage” with production dates Jan. 1-4

• 5-lb. paper-lined cardboard packages containing country-style rope “Daisyfield Brand Italian Sausage” with production dates Jan. 1-4

Myers said the company learned about the contamination on Monday and contacted the inspection service. The affected products were shipped to retail locations in Kentucky, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

There have been no confirmed reports of any adverse reactions because of the contamination, but anyone concerned about injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
