The GraceKennedy (GK) Group has confirmed that Jamaica is not impacted by the recall of a batch of its Grace Chicken Vienna Sausages announced by Conagra Brands Inc. in the Northeast US market.
The multinational conglomerate, in a statement, indicated that Grace’s vienna sausages, which are distributed in Jamaica, are manufactured in Jamaica.
Conagra Brands is based in Iowa and is a USDA-approved supplier of vienna sausages for the US market to GraceKennedy Foods (USA) LLC (Grace Foods USA). The Conagra recall does not affect any market outside of the USA.
Details of the batch of Grace Chicken Vienna Sausages being recalled are as follows:
|Product||Net Weight||Best Before Date & Batch Number|
|Grace Chicken Vienna Sausages in Chicken Broth||4.6 oz||BB 12/11/24 4208234620|
The best-before date and batch number can be found on the bottom of the product can. The batch was produced by Conagra for Grace Foods USA between December 12, 2022, and January 13, 2023, and bears establishment number “P4247” on the product cans.
Derrick Reckord, president and CEO of Grace Foods USA, explained that the Class 1 Voluntary Recall has been initiated by Conagra due to a packaging defect that may cause the products to become contaminated.
Reckord went on to say that there has been no report of any adverse health issues associated with the affected product to date. A Class 1 recall is issued when there is a possibility of adverse health effects from the consumption of a product.
Consumers who may have purchased Grace Chicken Vienna Sausages bearing the above best-before date (12/11/24) and corresponding batch number (4208234620) should not consume them.
Instead, they should be returned to the point of purchase, where the full cost will be refunded.
