Minnesota Food Alert – 234,391 Pounds of Ham & Pepperoni Recalled
This is not the time of year you want to hear about ham recalls, but here we are, a few weeks from Christmas and Alexander & Hornung in Michigan (a part of the Perdue Meat Company) is recalling about 234,391 pounds of fully cooked ham and pepperoni products that may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, which is some nasty stuff.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), the products were produced on various dates and distributed to Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin and across the nation.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. M10125” inside the USDA mark of inspection and include the following brand names: Wellshire, Alexander & Hornung, Garrett Valley Farms, Food Club, Butcher Boy, Niman Ranch, Open Nature, Five Star, and Big Y.

The problem was discovered when the company notified FSIS that product sampling reported positive Listeria monocytogenes results. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
This is a situation where the ham or pepperoni is in your freezer or fridge. If you have some, toss it and eat the cost instead, or bring it back to the store where you bought it for a refund.

If you were going to have ham for dinner tonight, consider eating out. Maybe at The Hubble House?
