Sausage recalled because of plastic concerns

Packaged meat company Smithfield Packing Company is recalling some 38,000 pounds of pork sausage because it may contain small pieces of plastic, likely from gloves, the U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Thursday.

The sausages were sold in 11 states and the District of Columbia.

    Compared to the "ingredients" of sausagey, rubber gloves are probably the best thing they could have added!

      You don't have to cook it first. Ever had Ethiopian food?

      There was a time in the evolutionary process where human beings were able to consume and digest raw meat.

    I'd love to hear the story of WHY they believe there might be chunks of gloves in the sausages.

    Forget the finger nails and knukle joints; Just don't eat the plastic.

      Hmm. Maybe one of the guys lost his (gloved) hand in the grinder, but they just sent him to hospital and kept production going.
