Reser's Fine Foods Issues Recall, Potential Listeria Contamination

Posted: Updated:

Washington — Oregon-based Reser's Fine Foods has recalled nearly 22,800 pounds of potentially bacteria-tainted food products, some of which have been shipped to Nebraska and Kansas.

These potentially contaminated foods include chicken, ham and beef products and refrigerated ready-to-eat salads made at a Topeka, Kan., plant.

The company and the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Tuesday the products may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The products were shipped to retailers and distributors in the 27 states listed here: 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.

The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service listed various "sell by" dates for the recalled products.

There have been no reports of illness. Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon and potentially fatal disease.

Symptoms can include high fever and severe headache.

Check with the place of purchase if you believe you may have a contaminated product.
