Allergy Alert: Undeclared Soy Protein In Sausages

DeNunzio's Sausage (Elmira, NY) has recalled nearly 36,400 pounds of ready-to-eat Polish Kielbasa sausages due to the presence of undeclared soy protein in the sausages. The oversight was discovered during a routine USDA inspection of the production facility.

The recalled sausages are packed in 1-, 2-, and 4-pound jars, labeled as "DeNunzio Polish Kielbasa, Fully Cooked, Ready To Eat, Packed In Vinegar." The jar labels are imprinted with Est. 18523 inside the USDA inspection mark. 

The kielbasa was produced between March 13 and November 26 and sold to distributors in Pennsylvania and New York for redistribution to retail establishments. No retail distribution list is available yet.

While no illnesses have been reported, individuals who are allergic to soy protein may suffer a severe reaction if they consume this product. Consumers with questions about this recall should contact the company's owner, James DeNunzio, at (607) 732-2131.
