Food Blog Recall: Kentucky Co. Recalls Liver Sausage

In a nutshell: Liver sausage recalled because product may contain nonfat dry milk which is a known allergen. The nonfat milk ingredient was not listed on the label. What an odd ingredient to have in liver sausage.

Dec. 10, 2007–Specialty Foods Group, Inc., an Owensboro, Ky., company, is recalling approximately 98,772 pounds of Braunschweiger liver sausage products because they may contain an undeclared allergen, non fat dry milk, which is not declared on the label.

The following products are subject to recall:

  • 16-ounce chubs of SCOTT PETERSEN* Braunschweiger (Liver Sausage). Each label bears the establishment number EST. 7467 inside the USDA mark of inspection. Each label will also bear a sell-by code of Dec 08 2007, Dec 15 2007, Dec 22 2007, Dec 29 2007, Jan 05 2008, Jan 12 2008, Jan 19 2008 or Jan 26 2008.

The liver sausage products were produced on various dates between Sept. 10, and Oct. 30, 2007, and were distributed to retail establishments in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin and in Burnsville, Minnesota.

The problem was discovered by the company. There have been no reports of illness due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an allergic reaction should contact a doctor.

*Scott Petersen is not the same Scott Peterson who killed his wife Laci in Modesto, Calif. but it still creeped me out.
