SPRINGFIELD, N.J., Feb. 27 (UPI) -- Schmalz's European Provisions in Springfield, N.J., recalled about 8,424 pounds of chicken and apple sausage that may contain small pieces of plastic.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said the 12-ounce vacuum packages of Applegate Organics Chicken and Apple Sausage with a use or freeze by date of March 17, 2013, on each package.

The recalled product bears the establishment number "P-5411" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The products were produced on Jan. 24, and were sold in retail stores nationwide and through limited Internet sales in New Jersey, the FDA said.

The problem was discovered after the company received three consumer complaints, but neither the company nor the government have received any reports of injury at this time, the FDA said.

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

Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Gina Aztecan, public affairs specialist or Gerry Clarkson, consumer affairs specialist at 1-800-587-5858.
