Sorg Farm Packing Issues Class II Recall of Summer Sausage, Snack Sticks

Sorg Farm Packing in Darien, WI, is issuing a voluntary Class II recall for summer sausage and snack stick products made from bison meat. The products, which were produced for Yankee Farmer’s Market in Warner, N.H., were not labeled with a refrigerated-handling statement. The recalled products include:

  • Buffalo (bison) summer sausage, 8-oz. packages
  • Uncured buffalo snack stick, 1.75-oz. packages

This is a Class II recall resulting from evidence collected during a routine inspection by state inspectors. Evidence shows that the products were not produced under a fully cooked, shelf stable Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) plan and therefore require refrigeration for safety. The products were not labeled with the appropriate safe handling statement to indicate refrigeration is necessary.

Consumers who have any of these products should discard them. Consumers and media with questions about this recall can contact Andy Sorg, Sorg Farm Packing owner, at (262) 745-3307.
