Topeka Company Recalls 23,000 Pounds of Meat


WASHINGTON (AP) — Reser's Fine Foods is recalling about 22,800 pounds of potentially bacteria-tainted chicken, ham and beef products.  Reser's Fine Foods is headquartered in Oregon but the recalled food items were all manufactured at the company's facility in Topeka.  No other facilities are involved in the recall.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced yesterday (TUE) that the meat products may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes

The meat was shipped to retailers and distributors in 27 states: 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.

For more information, consumers can call: 1-888-257-7913.
