An Oregon food company is recalling 22,800 pounds of chicken, ham and beef products, citing possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.
Reser’s Fine Foods-branded products originating from a Topeka, Kan., facility were first cited by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency for Listeria contamination, prompting a recall on Oct. 5 on packages of cheesy macaroni sold in Walmart stores with a best-before date of Oct. 20, CTV reports. Later, the recall extended to include 1.25kg packages with a best-before date of Nov. 2.
Reser decided to extend it to products in the United States made at the same facility, which were distributed to retailers and distributors in Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
No illnesses have been reported. Symptoms of listeriosis, an infection caused by eating food contaminated with the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes, include fever, muscle aches and gastrointestinal symptoms such as diarrhea.
The recalled Reser’s Fine Foods products regulated by FSIS bear the establishment number “EST. 13520” or “P-13520” inside the USDA mark of inspection and include the following:
