Minnesota-based Reichel Foods is recalling about 15,880 pounds of ready-to-eat meat and poultry products due to possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said.
The products being recalled include:
- 5.6 oz. packages of "Armour Active Packs Turkey & Cheese Wrap" Package Code 1026090112 or Case Code 27815-17994
- 5.6 oz. packages of "Armour Active Packs Ham & Cheese Wrap" Package Code 1026090112 or Case Code 27815-17995.
The products were made this year between July 23 - July 26 and have a "sell by" date through September 1, 2012. The packages bear the establishment number "P-19941" or "Est. 19941." The products were shipped to distribution centers in Indiana, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and Texas.
The problem was discovered by the establishment, through microbiological testing by a third party. FSIS and the company have not received reports of illnesses due to consumption of these products.
Consuming food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria can cause listeriosis, a potentially fatal disease in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. The symptoms of listeriosis include, fever, muscle aches, and sometimes gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea or diarrhea.
