ConSup North America Inc., based in Lincoln Park, New Jersey, has issued a recall for approximately 85,984 pounds of ready-to-eat sliced prosciutto ham.AdThe product, originating from Germany, is being recalled due to a lack of proper inspection, as announced by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The recall involves prosciutto ham produced between September 25, 2023, and March 6, 2024.

The specific product under recall is the 5.29-ounce plastic packages labeled “Stockmeyer PROSCIUTTO Product of GERMANY,” which are identified by lot codes 09118-3A, 09118-3B, 09120-3A, 09120-3B, 13133-3A, 13133-3B, 13104-3A, 13104-3B, 13105-3A, 13105-3B, 13109-3A, and 13109-3B.
