A voluntary recall has been issued for a small amount of Jimmy Dean Heat ‘n Serve Original Sausage Links after some consumers found metal fragments in the product.

The company says that some consumers have reportedly found small, string-like metal fragments inside the sausage. The fragments are thought by the company to be contained to only a select number of packages.

CTI, the company who co-manufactures Jimmy Dean sausage, is recalling approximately 29,028 pounds of product over the concerns. No injuries have been reported by consumers due to the recall.

Around 2,845 cases of the product were produced at a plant bearing the establishment code M19085 or P19085, a “use by” date of January 31, 2019, and a UPC number of “O-77900-36519-5.”
