KENOSHA, WI--   Kenosha Beef is recalling more than 89,000 pounds of pork product because they may be contaminated with small pieces of metal.  

The recall includes 24-ounce cartons of Johnsonville Grillers Cheddar Cheese and Bacon Flavor and 13.5-pound cases of Johnsonville Grillers Cheddar Cheese and Bacon Flavor containing nine, 24-ounce cartons. 

The frozen patties were produced on May 13.  Recalled packages bear the establishment number EST. 425B and a “BEST FLAVOR BY” date of 12-29-15.
