Where Local and Global Appetites Collide

Calif. Company Recalls Sausage Rolls

In a nutshell: Sausages recalled because they have eggs as an ingredient that wasn’t labeled as such. People allergic to eggs could have an allergic reaction.

Nov. 1, 2008 – Jolly Good Meat Products, a Los Angeles, Calif. establishment, is recalling approximately 600 pounds of ready-to-eat and raw banger sausage rolls because they may contain an undeclared allergen, eggs, the U. S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.

Egg is a known allergen, which is not declared on the label.

The following products are subject to recall:
• 8.9-pound cases of ready-to-eat “Jolly Good Banger Rolls.”
• 24-pound cases of raw “Jolly Good Banger Rolls.”

Each box bears Est. # “6216” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The Banger Rolls products were produced in September and October, and were shipped to distributors in California for further distribution to retail establishments and restaurants.

The problem was discovered by a routine FSIS inspection. FSIS has received no reports of illness due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an allergic reaction should contact a physician.
Consumers with questions about the recall should contact company owner Rodney Martin Lunt at (323) 290-2265.

  1. I wonder if there is a rule against simply slapping a small sticker on each package that says eggs are an ingredient in the product. I feel like I have seen food with labels added on after the fact. Have you seen this? I’m thinking specifically about cookies made in factories that process nuts.

    Take care,

  2. Grace,
    I don’t know the ruling.
    I see one problem is that the added label can fall off or be ripped off.
    Thanks for commenting.
