WASHINGTON, July 10, 2015 Gourmet Culinary Solutions, a Statham, Ga., establishment, is recalling approximately 495 pounds of turkey sausage products that are part of a frozen entrÃe that also contains French toast sticks and peaches.

The products subject to recall may contain pieces of a conveyor belt inside the packaging. The packages bear establishment number P-21200 inside the USDA mark of inspection. Individual entrÃes were distributed to older adults in Georgia as part of the Meals on Wheels program.
The problem was discovered in 10-lb. bulk packages of the French toast sticks by a customer of the ingredient manufacturer. The customer contacted Gourmet Culinary Solutions. Gourmet Culinary Solutions notified FSIS of the problem, and then began a market withdrawal of the products.
