Trader Joe's recall: Chicken sausage may be contaminated

Love the Trader Joe's brand of chicken sausage? Well, you'll need to check your labels ASAP, as a Massachusetts company is recalling almost 30 tons of chicken sausage — including a brand sold at Trader Joe's.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Kayem Foods recalled the chicken sausage due to concerns that it can contain pieces of plastic! Yikes! I'm definitely not wanting any plastic in my chicken... or any food for that matter.

If you're a fan of chicken sausage (either Trader Joe's or others), run to your fridge immediately, and check it for these labels:

Since we all know how much I love to cook with sausage, definitely the first thing I am doing when I get home is checking my labels. I'll be sad if I have to throw out anything, but better safe than sorry! Hopefully we'll all be having our favorite chicken sausage very, very soon.
