Sausage products from a California-based company are being recalled due to possible contamination with dangerous toxins.

The company, Lee Bros. Foodservice Inc., says some of its products may be contaminated with Staphylococcus aureusenterotoxin. 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 the toxin.

The recall includes 740 pounds of sausage products: 16-ounce packages of Lee's Sandwiches brand pork sausages produced on Feb. 11 with the identifying code "042P" and 16-ounce packages of pork and chicken sausages produced on Feb. 12 with the code "043PC."

The products were sold in Arizona, California, Nevada, Oklahoma and Texas, as well as online. There have been no reports of illnesses.
