KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin company is recalling roughly 89,000 pounds of pork sausage patties after officials say consumers complained of finding small pieces of metal.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture said in a news release Wednesday that the products from Kenosha Beef International being recalled "may be contaminated with extraneous materials." The products under recall are frozen patties labeled "Johnsonville Grillers Cheddar Cheese & Bacon Flavor," and have a "best flavor by" date of Dec. 29.

The department says its Food Safety and Inspection Service and the company haven't received reports of oral injuries, adverse reactions or illness. The source of the issue isn't known.

The products were shipped to 11 states, including Illinois, Michigan and Texas. The Department of Agriculture says consumers should throw away the patties or return them.
