A Sparta ShopRite has initiated a voluntary recall of store-made ground pork, bulk hot and sweet sausage and meatloaf mix that was produced and sold on Thursday, Nov. 21, according to a news release by the company.
The release says there is a possibility that the products may contain small metal fragments due to a problem with the grinder at the store located on 18 N. Village Blvd.
"We are advising customers who purchased any of the recalled items at the ShopRite of Sparta to return them for an immediate refund or replacement," said ShopRite Spokesperson Karen Meleta in the news release.
No other products sold at ShopRite are affected by the recall and no injuries related to the recall have been reported.
ShopRite says it reached out to Price Plus card customers who purchased the products to alert them about the recall.
The news release went on to say that "This is an isolated incident and affects only the ShopRite of Sparta. Pre-packaged ground meat and pork products sold in other ShopRite stores in the area are not affected by this recall. ShopRite is asking customers to check the labels of any store-made ground pork, bulk sausage or meatloaf mix they may have purchased at the ShopRite of Sparta with a sell-by date of November 21. Customers can return the recalled products for a full refund or replacement. Customer questions or concerns can be directed to 1-800-ShopRite (1-800-746-7748)."
