YOAKUM, Texas (AP) — A Texas meatpacker is recalling more than 9 tons (8.16 metric tons) of smoked sausage over possible contamination by soft plastic in its second recall in a month.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture on Thursday announced the latest recall by Eddy Packing Co. of Yoakum. The company on May 4 recalled nearly 25 tons (22.68 metric tons) of smoked sausage due to possible plastic contamination.

The latest recall involves items produced March 14 for Texas businesses. The 10-pound (4.54-kilogram) cases of Carl's Pork and Beef Smoked Sausage with a Stick have lot code 8073, case code PS9319, a sell-by date of March 14, 2019, and USDA marker "EST 4800."

Eddy Packing received a customer complaint about soft, green plastic material in a product. Officials have no reports of anyone getting sick.

The smoked sausage should be discarded or returned to the place of purchase.
