PAUL, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) and Fergus Locker Plant LLC of Fergus Falls, have issued a consumer advisory for pork links (breakfast sausage) that were produced without the benefit of state inspection and do not have the necessary records to document the product was produced according to state and federal regulations.
