Johnsonville announced Friday that it has initiated a class 1 voluntary recall of its Cheddar Cheese & Bacon Grillers, because they may contain small, black pieces of rubber.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's classifications say that a class 1 recall is, "a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death." (Read more about this HERE)
