Almost 30,000 pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat pork and poultry sausage link products are being recalled because they may contain pieces of metal.

The recall is identified as "Class I" by the United States Food and Drug Administration.

The Owingsville, KY-based CTI Foods produced the ready-to-eat (RTE) sausage links on August 4, according to a recall notice posted by the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The recall was issued on Monday night after the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food and Safety Service received five consumer complaints of metal pieces in the meals.
