Dort Meat Co. Recalls  Sliced or Shaved Ham and Corned Beef for Restaurants

Flint, MI (SafetyAlerts) - Dort Meat Co. is voluntarily recalling approximately 80 pounds of cooked corned beef and cooked ham that may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The products being recalled are "Sliced or Shaved Cooked Corned Beef Round and 20% Water" in vacuum packages that weigh an average of 4-6 pounds and "Shaved or Sliced Boneless Ham and Water Product" in packages that weigh an average of 10 pounds. The packages bear "EST. 2431" inside the USDA seal of inspection on the label.

The products were produced Feb. 21 and distributed to restaurants in Genesee Co., Mich.

Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis. Listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness, and nausea. Listeriosis can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weak immune systems--infants, the frail or elderly, and persons with chronic disease, with HIV infection, or taking chemotherapy.

FSIS has received no reports of illness associated with consumption of this product. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a physician.

Notice of this product warning was sent via email to SafeMail subscribers March 1, 2000.
