Missouri firm recalls possibly tainted sausages

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - T. Piekutowski European Style Sausage is recalling about 750 pounds of sausage products for possible contamination with Listeria, a bacterium that can cause a fatal infection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said on Thursday.

The tainted goods were sold at the establishment’s retail counter in St. Louis, Missouri. Consumers could have bought them on December 18 and 19, the department’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said in a statement.

Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease, the statement said.
