There is a food recall warning in effect for chicken sausages sold at Costco stores, including other retailers who might be carrying the product.

Connie’s Kitchen branded chicken sausages (specifically in the feta and spinach flavour) are being recalled by Health Canada, due to the potential of plastic pieces embedded inside the sausage.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency warns consumers to not buy or eat the item and retailers are asked to pull the recalls from their shelves.
