Well, hello there, When Food Attacks. We haven't visited with you in a while. But we return to your clammy, off-smelling embrace with a doozy of a recall:
Manda Packing Company of Baker, Louisiana, has recalled 468,000 pounds of its meat products over the risk of listeria contamination. And before you smugly point out that you Baker, Louisiana is nowhere near St. Louis, we note that both Missouri and Illinois are among the states to which Manda distributed its products.
The recall (dated April 12) involves multiple products under multiple brand names. The official USDA announcement of the Manda recall has the complete list of brands.
The recalled products include ham under nine different brand names with a "Sell by" date of May 13-July 1, 2013; turkey under four different brand names with a "Sell by" date of May 13-June 22, 2013; two brands of corned beed with a "Sell by" date of May 13-June 22, 2013; and two brands of pastrami with a "Sell by" date of May 13-June 22, 2013.
But wait. There's more.
Other recalled products are four brands of hog head cheese with a "Sell by" date of May 13-June 22, 2013; three brands of tasso pork with a "Sell by" date of May 13-July 2, 2013; and one brand of ham shanks with a "Sell by" date of May 13-June 9, 2013.
All of the recalled products include the establishment number "EST. 8746A" within the USDA inspection mark.
