Roughly 4,200 pounds of Bob Evans Farms' pork sausage is being recalled, because it could contain pieces of thin blue rubber, according to a notice from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
Though the recall was issued after the company received customer complaints, no information about potential injuries was provided. The sausage was shipped to retail stores in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. (Related: 7 Healthiest Foods to Eat Right Now.)

"FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers' refrigerators or freezers or both," the notice says. "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."
This recall is classified as a Class II by FSIS, meaning it "is a health hazard situation where there is a remote probability of adverse health consequences from the use of the product."
