(Newser) – On the heels of a recall on hot dogs that contained metal shards, a Kansas food distributor has recalled nearly 100,000 pounds of precooked sausage products for the same reason, reports the AP. The recall was announced Wednesday by Armour-Eckrich Meats in Junction City. The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service says the recall includes more than 8,000 cases of 16.6-ounce packages of "Eckrich Smok-Y Cheddar Breakfast Sausage, Naturally Hardwood Smoked." The labels have the case and UPC code "27815 17984," with a use-by date of Aug. 17. The products also have the number "EST. 3JC" inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were distributed in Kansas, Arkansas, Indiana, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas. The fully cooked pork, turkey, and beef breakfast sausages were produced and packaged from April 26 to April 28. No injuries have been reported. (Read more recall stories.)
