August 7, 2020: Blue Grass Provisions Public Health Alert Issued For Ready To Eat Sausage Products Due To Potential Listeria Contamination

A Blue Grass Provisions Public Health Alert has been announced by FSIS for the company’s ready-to-eat sausage products that may be contaminated with Listeria bacteria.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has issued a public health alert for ready-to-eat sausages produced by Bluegrass Provisions Co., of Crescent Springs, Kentucky because the products that may be contaminated with the foodborne pathogen Listeria monocytogenes (Listeria).

A recall was not requested by the agency because it is believed that all of the products covered by the alert are no longer in commerce and, are past their use or freeze by dates.  FSIS is concerned however, that some sausage product may still be in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to eat the sausages due to potential Listeria contamination. These sausage products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase advises FSIS.

Sausages Subject To The Blue Grass Provisions Public Health Alert

Product affected by the the Bluegrass Provisions public health alert included the company’s ready-to-eat smoked sausages produced on April 22, 2020. The following products subject to the public health alert include:

  • 14-oz. plastic packages containing 6 pieces of “BLUE GRASS METTWURST,” with a use or freeze by date of July 23, 2020.
  • 14-oz. plastic packages containing 6 pieces of “WALNUT CREEK FOODS Smoked Sausage,” with a use or freeze by date of July 23, 2020.
  • 14-oz. plastic packages containing 6 pieces of Lidl “SMOKED BRATWURST,” with a use or freeze by date of July 23, 2020.
  • 14-oz. plastic packages containing 6 pieces of Lidl “SMOKED BRATWURST WITH CHEESE,” with a use or freeze by date of July 23, 2020.

The products subject to the Blue Grass Provisions public health alert bear establishment number “EST. 7417” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to distributors and retail locations in Kentucky, Ohio, North Carolina, and Virginia. 

According to FSIS, the problem was discovered by routine testing when the results showed one of the sausage products was contaminated with Listeria. There is concern that the additional products may be affected by cross-contamination.

About Listeria Food Poisoning

According to FSIS, consumption of food contaminated with Listeria can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women and their newborns. Less commonly, persons outside these risk groups are affected.

Listeriosis can cause fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms. An invasive infection spreads beyond the gastrointestinal tract. In pregnant women, the infection can cause miscarriages, stillbirths, premature delivery or life-threatening infection of the newborn. In addition, serious and sometimes fatal infections can occur in older adults and persons with weakened immune systems. Listeriosis is treated with antibiotics. Persons in the higher-risk categories who experience flu-like symptoms within two months after eating contaminated food should seek medical care and tell the health care provider about eating the contaminated food.
