SAN JOSE, CA (AP/CBS5) -

A northern California company is recalling 740 pounds of its sausage products because they may be contaminated with dangerous toxins.

An FSIS inspector discovered during a safety assessment that the water level in the product may have been high enough to allow for the production of Staphylococcus aureus enterotoxin.

The United States Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said Thursday that Lee Bros. Foodservice Inc. of San Jose is recalling:

  • 16 oz packages of Lee's Sandwiches brand Pork Sausages produced on 2/11/13 with an identifying code "042P" printed on the back of the package.
  • 16 oz packages of Lee's Sandwiches brand Pork and Chicken Sausages produced on 2/12/13 with an identifying code of "043PC" printed on the back of the package.

The sausages were sold at outlets in Arizona, California, Nevada, Oklahoma and Texas as well as online.

There have been no reports of illnesses.

Consumers and media with questions about the recall should contact the company's Customer Service line at 800-640-8880.
