Washington -- Reser's Fine Foods is once again expanding its recall of chicken, ham, and beef products to include all products produced between Oct. 10 and Oct. 25, 2013.
The company previously expanded its recall on Oct. 26, 2013 to include product produced between Sept. 5 and Oct. 9, 2013. This is in addition to the 22,800 pounds of product recalled on Oct. 22, 2013.
The products are being recalled due to possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
A full list of products being recalled in this expansion can be found on FDA's website here.
Products regulated by FSIS bear the establishment number "EST. 13520" or "P-13520" inside the USDA mark of inspection. Only products made at the Topeka, Kansas salad facility, also designated by the plant code #20 after the code date "Use By Nov 03 13 #20" are affected by this recall. No other Reser's facilities are involved in this action.
Recommendations for People At-Risk for Listeriosis:
•Wash hands with warm, soapy water before and after handling raw meat and poultry for at least 20 seconds. Wash cutting boards, dishes and utensils with hot, soapy water. Immediately clean spills.
•Keep raw meat, fish and poultry away from other food that will not be cooked. Use separate cutting boards for raw meat, poultry and egg products and cooked foods.
•Do not eat hot dogs, luncheon meats, bologna or other deli meats unless reheated until steaming hot.
•Do not eat refrigerated paté, meat spreads from a meat counter or smoked seafood found in the refrigerated section of the store. Foods that don't need refrigeration, like canned tuna and canned salmon, are safe to eat. Refrigerate after opening.
•Do not drink raw (unpasteurized) milk and do not eat foods that have unpasteurized milk in them.
•Do not eat salads made in the store such as ham salad, chicken salad, egg salad, tuna salad or seafood salad.
•Do not eat soft cheeses such as Feta, queso blanco, queso fresco, Brie, Camembert cheeses, blue-veined cheeses and Panela unless it is labeled as made with pasteurized milk.
•Use precooked or ready-to-eat food as soon as you can. Listeria can grow in the refrigerator. The refrigerator should be 40° F or lower and the freezer 0° F or lower. Use an appliance thermometer to check the temperature of your refrigerator.
