WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today that Teton Waters Ranch Polish Sausage has been recalled due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen.

The sausage contains milk, particularly mozzarella cheese, a known allergen that is not declared on the product label.

The products were produced on Oct. 9, 2020.

The following products are subject to recall:

  • 10-oz. vacuum packed packages of four “TETON WATERS RANCH POLISH SAUSAGE” with lot code “202831,” “Use or Freeze By: JAN/8/21” date and bear establishment number “Est. 6024” on the side of the packaging label.

These items were shipped to retail locations in California, Colorado, Indiana, Maryland, Maine, New York and Oregon.

A customer alerted a firm that product labeled as “Teton Waters Ranch Polish Sausage,” contained red bell peppers, as well as mozzarella cheese, which were not included on the product label.

There aren't any reports of adverse reactions, and concerns of an injury or illness should be addressed by healthcare provider.

Consumers are urged to check their freezers, toss the recalled item, and/or return it to the place of purchase.
