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


A Michigan-based company is recalling 234,391 pounds of cooked ham and pepperoni products due to possible contamination.

All 17 recalled products are branded “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 kept in refrigerators and freezers and that they should not be consumed but rather thrown away or brought back to the place of purchase. The brands included in the recall are Alexander & Hornung, Wellshire, Butcher Boy, Garret Valley Farms, Food Club, Niman Ranch, Open Nature, Big Y and Five Star.

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

A complete list of affected products and product labels are available on the USDA website.
