WASHINGTON, D.C. – A recall has been issued for nearly 23,000 pounds of chicken, ham and beef products because of a potential Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
The products were distributed to retailers and distributors in 27 states. The problem was discovered through testing by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. They determined there was a potential cross contamination from products with Listeria monocytogenes that touched surfaces.
The potentially contaminated products come from Reser’s Fine Foods, a Topeka, Kansas establishment.
FSIS and the company have not received reports of illnesses due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a healthcare provider.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced the recall Wednesday.
People with questions about the recall should contact the Reser’s Fine Foods Consumer Hotline at 1-888-257-7913 (8 a.m. – 8 p.m. Eastern Time).
