Missouri Meat Company Expands Recall

JEFFESON CITY, Mo. (AP) – A western Missouri meat company has expanded its recall to include 137 pounds of cooked head sausage.

The Agriculture Department announced Thursday that the sausage was produced Sept. 15 by Alma Meats and is labeled Lot (hash)1085211. It was distributed within Lafayette County and to 4-K Cheese and Meat in Cole Camp and The Cheese Store in Sweet Springs.

The announcement came after the Agriculture Department announced last week that inspectors found records indicating Alma Meats sold meat that was improperly handled and not inspected. The initial recall included 320 pounds of meat, including summer sausage, snack sticks, beef jerky and roast pork.

Alma Meats is no longer able to process meat for retail or wholesale distribution, but it will continue to process meat for livestock owners.
