WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service is issuing a public health alert for raw ground chorizo sausage products due to concerns that the products may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically hard pieces of crystalline material. FSIS is issuing this public health alert out of the utmost caution to ensure consumers are aware that these products should not be consumed. A recall was not requested because it is believed that the products are no longer available for consumers to purchase.

The fresh and frozen raw ground chorizo sausage items were produced on March 8, 2021, by Century Oak Packing Company, an establishment in Mt. Angel, Ore. The following product is subject to the public health alert:

1-lb. packages containing "Lonely Lane Farms Family Farm Since 1939 OREGON RAISED Chorizo Sausage" and product ID 21067-6. The products bear establishment number "EST. M40256" inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were sold at a farmer's market and also shipped to retail locations in Oregon. Read full story
