Louisiana company recalls 468K pounds of meat
NEW ORLEANS - The U.S. Department of Agriculture says a Louisiana-based meat packing company has expanded a recall of meat products because of possible bacterial contamination. No illnesses have been reported.
The Manda Packing Company recall announced this past week now includes 468,000 pounds of roast beef, ham, turkey breast, tasso pork, ham shanks, hog headcheese, corned beef, and pastrami.
The agriculture department said Friday the products were recalled because of possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.
The products were shipped to retailers in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.
A statement on the company's website says the recalled meats were produced at Manda's Baker facility between Feb. 27 and April 9.
