The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has announced a major recall by Pelleh Poultry Corp., a Swan Lake, New York-based establishment.

AdThe company is recalling approximately 708 pounds of ready-to-eat (RTE) beef and poultry products potentially contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, a harmful bacterial pathogen.

This recall affects products packaged between October 25, 2023, and November 20, 2023. Officials said the recall may expand as additional labels are reviewed.

Items subject to recall are identified by the establishment number “EST. P44121” within the USDA mark of inspection.Ad These products were distributed to retail and institutional locations across New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.

The potential contamination was identified through routine laboratory testing by the establishment, leading to the notification of FSIS. While there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions from consuming these products, the FSIS advises anyone concerned about illness to seek medical advice.

Listeriosis, the infection caused by consuming food contaminated with L. monocytogenes, poses a serious risk, particularly to older adults, individuals with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women and their newborns.

Although less common, people outside these risk groups can also be affected.
