Packing Co. Recalls 450 Pounds of Cooked Luncheon Meats
MARSHALLVILLE, OH (SafetyAlerts)
- An Ohio meat company announced today that they are voluntarily recalling approximately
450 pounds of cooked luncheon meats (Wieners, Summer Sausage, etc.) because they may be
contaminated with Listeria Monocytogenes bacteria.
Marshallville Packing Company of Marshallville,
Ohio is recalling all luncheon meats with the identifying code "7D2" printed on
the bottom of the label.
The products were packaged on July 27, 1999, and
sold through the retail store at the Marshallville Packing Company in Marshallville, Ohio.
Customers who have any of these meat products may return them for a cash refund or
The action is precautionary and there is no
evidence that the product is associated with any human illness.
"Because of the potential of foodborne
illness, we urge our customers who have purchased the suspect products not to eat them and
return them to us", said Frank Tucker, President of Marshallville Packing Company.
Tucker also said, "Our customers should understand that proper cooking and
preparation will kill this bacteria and eliminate its potential for illness."

problem through its routine monitoring of the food supply for possible contamination. One
package of skinless beef wieners was found to contain the bacteria after testing at the
agency's Consumer Analytical Laboratory in Reynoldsburg.
