WASHINGTON, Feb. 21 (UPI) -- A Smithfield, Va., company is recalling some 38,000 pounds of pork sausage that may contain small pieces of plastic, likely from gloves, officials say.

Officials at the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said 1-pound packages of Smithfield Packing Company's Gwaltney mild pork sausage roll with a use-by date of Mar. 12 and a case code of 78533109741.

The recalled product bears the establishment number "Est. 221-A" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The products were produced on Jan. 11 and were distributed in Alabama, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Texas.

The problem was discovered after the company received two consumer complaints, but there have received no reports of injury at this time.

Anyone concerned about an injury from consumption of these products should contact a healthcare provider, FDIS officials said.

Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Wendy Johnson, manager of consumer affairs, at (877) 933-4625.
