Ohio company recalls almost 2,000 lbs. of sausage

A recall has been issued for nearly 2,000 pounds of raw pork sausage produced by J. H. Routh Packing Co. in Sandusky that may be contaminated by extraneous materials — specifically rubber. 

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the recall Wednesday. 

Jungle Jim's East Gate in Cincinnati and Jungle Jim's in Fairfield (Butler/Hamilton counties) sell the sausage products under the Daisyfield Pork brand sold and distributed to grocery stores throughout Ohio and the eastern United States.
