The products subject to recall bear the establishment number "EST. 18894" inside the USDA mark of inspection. These products were shipped to a various retail locations in New York.
The problem was discovered during routine sampling. In early April 2015, this establishment underwent construction, and in May 2015, FSIS performed routine listeria monocytogenes sampling. Environmental, product-contact surface and Ready-to-Eat (RTE) products that were analyzed for sampling were found to be listeria monocytogenes positive. Additional FSIS and establishment sampling confirmed Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems and pregnant women and their newborns. Less commonly, persons outside these risk groups are affected.
Listeriosis can cause fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms. An invasive infection spreads beyond the gastrointestinal tract. In pregnant women, the infection can cause miscarriages, stillbirths, premature delivery or life-threatening infection of the newborn. In addition, serious and sometimes fatal infections in older adults and persons with weakened immune systems. Listeriosis is treated with antibiotics. Persons in the higher-risk categories who experience flu-like symptoms within two months after eating contaminated food should seek medical care and tell the health care provider about eating the contaminated food.
FSIS and the company are concerned some product may be frozen and in consumers' freezers.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
FSIS advises all consumers to reheat ready-to-eat product until steaming hot.
