REDKEY, Ind.–About 750 pounds of pork products have been recalled by Fisher Packing Company because of concerns that they may be contaminated with Listeria.
On Saturday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) said Fisher Packing Company, a Redkey establishment, was recalling 744 pounds of those products. The products in the recall include smoked ham, smoked ham shanks, and Canadian bacon.
The USDA said the problem was discovered when the firm notified FSIS that a sample of product produced by Fisher Packing Company confirmed positive for the presence of Listeria monocytogenes.
The RTE pork products were packaged on August 27, 2019. The following products are subject to recall:
- Vacuum-sealed packages of various weights containing “FISHER MEATS OLD FASHION SMOKED HAM” with a lot code of 19239 on the label.
- Vacuum-sealed packages of various weights of “FISHER MEATS SMOKED HAM SHANKS WITH NATURAL JUICES” with a lot code of 19239 on the label.
- Vacuum-sealed packages of various weights of “FISHER MEATS CANADIAN BACON” with a freeze by date of 11/25/19 and a lot code of 19239 on the label.
Eating food that has been contaminated with L. monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, people with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women and their newborns.
Listeriosis can cause fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms.
So far, there are no confirmed illnesses. You can read more about the recall here.
