Michigan company recalls 230,000 pounds of cooked ham and pepperoni products


Michigan company is recalling 234,391 pounds of cooked ham and pepperoni over possible contamination.

The 17 recalled products bear the “EST. M10125 “inside the USDA inspection mark and have been shipped to retail outlets across the country.

Consumption of food contaminated with L. monocytogenes can lead to a serious infection known as listeriosis, according to the USDA. Listeriosis mainly affects people with weakened immune systems, the elderly, pregnant women and their newborns.

The inspection service warns that these products can be stored in refrigerators and freezers and that they should not be consumed but rather thrown away or returned to the place of purchase. The recalled brands are Alexander & Hornung, Wellshire, Butcher Boy, Garret Valley Farms, Food Club, Niman Ranch, Open Nature, Big Y and Five Star.

For all consumers concerned about health concerns associated with the recalled products, the USDA urges them to contact their physician. As of the start of the week, there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions associated with these products.

A complete list of affected products and the Iabels for products can be found on the USDA website.
