MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Monogram Meat Snacks LLC, a division of Monogram Foods, has voluntarily recalled nearly 192,000 pounds of ready-to-eat (RTE) pork sausage items due to product tampering and a possible contamination. These products were sold in convenience stores and other retailers nationwide.

This isn’t the first jerky recall in convenience stores over recent months. In September 2018, Lake Jackson, Texas-based Buc-ee’s recalled nearly 700 pounds of its Hill Country Brand Teriyaki Beef Jerky due to a metal contamination.
