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.
