Wilson Beef Farms Has Recalled 100 pounds of Hot Dogs

Canaseraga, NY (SafetyAlerts) - Wilson Beef Farms has recalled a 100 pounds of Beef & Pork Hot Dogs sold July 5, 2002 or after. The product tested positive for listeria monocytogenes in routine random sampling conducted by the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. There have been no reported illnesses associated with this recall. The bacteria is destroyed by cooking.

Customers may return any unused portions to Wilson Beef Farms for a full refund. Any consumers having questions may call Chris
