Marshallville 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 replacement.

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."

The Ohio Department of Agriculture discovered the 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.

Customers may bring those designated packages into Marshallville Packing or call John or Frank Tucker for further information at (330) 855-2871.
