Reser's Fine Foods has issued a recall
of nearly 23,000 pounds of chicken, ham, and beef products in 27 states over concern regarding possible bacteria contamination.
The company and the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture said Tuesday that the refrigerated, ready-to-eat goods may contain listeria monocytogenes, which primarily affect "older adults, pregnant women, newborns, and adults with weakened immune systems," according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
The affected products contain the establishment number "EST. 13520" or "P-13520" inside the USDA mark of inspection and include five-pound bags of Cobble Street Market Chicken Salad, Cross Valley Farms Chicken Salad, Cross Valley Farms Ham Salad, Reser's Fine Foods White Meat Chicken Salad with Cranberries & Pecans, Reser's Fine Foods Chicken Salad, Reser's Fine Foods Ham Salad, and Reser's Fine Foods Ham Salad Supreme, the company said.
In addition, Reser's is also recalling Millers Bar-B-Que Beans with Beef, Reser's Fine Foods White Meat Chicken Salad, Classic Chicken Salad, Chef Solutions Cranberry Pecan White Meat Chicken Salad, and Stonemill Kitchens Loaded Potato Salad with Bacon.
The products were sent to retailers and distributors in 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.
Also, The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has expanded a recall for Reser's Cheesy Macaroni Salad, dated Nov. 2, 2013, out of Listeria concerns.
In July, national retailer Whole Foods recalled its Trois Comtois Morbier cheese
in five regions across the U.S., also because of potential Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
