AUSTIN (KJCE) -- A recall has been issued for more than 400,000 pounds of smoked sausage products sold at H-E-B stores, due to an unlisted ingredient.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says J Bar B Foods is recalling approximately 410,985 pounds of beef brisket smoked sausage products due to an adulterated and misbranded ingredient. The products contain a pork casing, which is not declared on the product label, and may cause an allergic reaction in some individuals.

The ready-to-eat products, labeled as “H-E-B TEXAS HERITAGE SAUSAGE SMOKED WITH NATURAL HARDWOOD BEEF BRISKET" in 12-ounce vacuum-packed packages, were produced on various dates from June 21, 2016 to May 29, 2018.

A complete list of lot codes, packaging dates, and other details is available here.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 7066” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in Texas. The problem was discovered on June 12, 2018 in response to a customer inquiry that a beef smoked sausage product did not specify pork casing as part of the ingredients statement.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
