WASHINGTON, Dec. 2, 2008 - DeNunzio's Sausage, an Elmira, New York establishment, is recalling approximately 36,388 pounds of ready-to-eat Polish Kielbasa sausage products because they may contain an undeclared allergen, soy protein, the U. S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today. Soy protein is a known allergen, which is not declared on the label.

The following products are subject to recall:

1-pound, 2-pound, and 4-pound jars of "DeNunzio POLISH KIELBASA, FULLY COOKED, READY TO EAT, PACKED IN VINEGAR."

Each label bears "Est. 18523" inside the USDA mark of inspection. The sausage products were produced on various dates between March 13 and Nov. 26, and were shipped to distributors in New York and Pennsylvania for further distribution to retail establishments.

The problem was discovered by a routine FSIS inspection. FSIS has received no reports of illness due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an allergic reaction should contact a physician.

Media and consumers with questions about the recall should contact company owner James DeNunzio at (607) 732-2131.
