Veedersburg, Ind. (SafetyAlerts) - United States Department of Agriculture, Food Safety and Inspection Service, (FSIS) said that Payton?s Barbecue is recalling fresh and frozen fully-cooked pork and corned beef barbecue because it may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

This is the first public notice of this Class I recall issued by the FSIS.

Each package label bears ?EST. 7762? inside the USDA seal of inspection. These products were distributed to retail and institutional establishments in Illinois and Indiana.

The following products subject to recall were distributed to retail and institutional establishments:

1 lb. tubs of ?PAYTON?S BARBECUE SAUCE WITH PORK AND CORNED BEEF,?

4 lb. tubs of ?PAYTON?S ORIGINAL PORK AND CORNED BEEF WITH BARBECUE SAUCE,? and

8 lb. tubs of ?PAYTON?S ORIGINAL PORK AND CORNED BEEF WITH BARBECUE SAUCE.?
The following products subject to recall were distributed to institutional establishments:

?PAYTON?S ORIGINAL PORK AND CORNED BEEF WITH BARBECUE SAUCE? packaged in 27 lb. cases. Each case contains four-6.75 lb. bags.

?DOG n SUDS BARBECUE SAUCE WITH PORK & CORNED BEEF? packaged in 50 lb. cases. Each case contains five-10 lb. bags. ?Because of the potential for foodborne illness, we want consumers to be aware of the recall,? said Margaret O?K. Glavin, FSIS associate administrator. ?We urge consumers who have purchased these products not to eat them and return them to the place of purchase. Additionally, diners may wish to ask if their meal contains the recalled products.?

The problem was discovered through routine FSIS microbiological testing.

Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis. Listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness, and nausea. Listeriosis can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weak immune systems ? infants, the frail or elderly, and persons with chronic disease, with HIV infection, or taking chemotherapy.

FSIS has received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of this product. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a physician.
