According to the release, each can bears the establishment number “P-4247” inside the USDA mark of inspection, a UPC Code of “54100 93824” and a Use By date of Sept. 7, 2015. The products subject to recall were produced on Sept. 7, 2012, and sold to retail establishments nationwide.

Armour says on their website, the affected product was sold only at WalMart stores.

The company, who discovered the problem, says miscalculations that caused the product to be undercooked during the production process.

According to the Armour Vienna Sausage Bourbon BBQ label, the ingredients include pork, chicken and beef, all of which could be a source of  infectious organisms if not properly cooked.

The FSIS and the company have received no reports of illnesses due to consumption of these products.

Consumers with questions about the recall should contact the company at            1 (888) 299-7646       from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday.
