The problems were discovered on Dec. 10 after five consumer complaints about metal pieces found in Jimmy Dean frozen, ready-to-eat sausages.

The recall affects 23.4 ounce pouches of "Jimmy Dean Heat n' Serve Original Sausage Links Made with Pork & Turkey," according to the USDA.

The sausage links were produced on Aug. 4, 2018. The USDA said no one has suffered any injuries, but the agency is urging any consumers who may have bought the potentially contaminated links to either return them to the store where they bought them or throw them out.
