Contaminated Ham Slices, Hot Summer Sausage Recalled In Ohio

FRAZEYSBURG, OH (SafetyAlerts) - Olde Village Meats of Frazeysburg Ohio is voluntarily recalling approximately 175 pounds of cooked meats because they may be contaminated with Listeria Monocytogenes according to Jeff Smith, owner of the company.

The recalled meats are Olde Village Meat's Boneless Smoked Ham Slices with natural juices and Olde Village Meat's Hot Summer Sausage.   These products can be identified by the product code number 81599 and the manufacture date of 7/12/99. The product was sold in Frazeysburg, Ohio between July 12 and July 29, 1999.

Because of the potential of foodborne illness, Olde Village Meats urges their customers who have purchased the suspect products not to eat them and return them to the company.  Although proper cooking and preparation of the food by the consumer can kill the bacteria and eliminate the potential for illness, these products are cooked during processing and considered "ready-to-eat."

The Ohio Department of Agriculture discovered the problem through its routine monitoring of the food supply for possible contamination. One sample of the Olde Village Meat's Boneless Smoked Ham Slices with natural juices and one sample of Olde Village Meat's Hot Summer Sausage were found to contain Listeria Monocytogenes in tests conducted at the agency's Consumer Analytical Laboratory.

Customers may bring those designated packages to Olde Village Meats or call Jeff Smith at 740-828-2780.
