744 kg of pork recalled in Indiana for possible Listeria contamination

INDIANAPOLIS – An Indiana company is recalling 744 pounds ready to eat pork products that may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, according to federal officials.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced late Saturday that products from the Fisher Packing Company in Redkey were being shipped state-by-state. They were packed in late August.

Products include smoked ham, smoked ham and Canadian bacon. They have the establishment number "74SEIN" inside the USDA check mark. Products must be discarded or returned.

Federal officials said the problem was discovered when the company found that a sample confirmed positive for Listeria monocytogenes.

Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause a serious infection that primarily affects the elderly, people with weak immune systems and pregnant and newborns.
There are no confirmed disease reports.
