- 12 oz. tubs of “Keoki’s Kalua Brand Pork”
- 48 oz. tubs of “Keoki’s Kalua Brand Pork”
These products were produced on May 24 and 25, 2012, and contain the establishment number “EST. 12429” inside the USDA mark of inspection, as well as the batch numbers 546 and 552.
This recall was initiated after routine sampling by the FSIS detected the presence of listeria in Keoki’s Kalua Brand Pork. To date, there have been no illnesses reported in connection with this recall. Individuals concerned about a listeria food poisoning illness should contact their healthcare provider immediately.
Listeria Food Poisoning (Listeriosis)
Listeriosis is a potentially fatal form of food poisoning caused by consuming food products contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria. Unlike the majority of other foodborne pathogens, listeria can grow in foods stored in the refrigerator. Listeria monocytogenes can be spread through contact with infected hands or countertops in the process of food preparation. Those at the greatest risk for developing listeriosis include children, the elderly, and those with otherwise compromised immune systems.
Signs and symptoms of listeriosis in adults may include (but are not limited to):
- severe headache
In babies, symptoms may include:
- loss of appetite
- difficulty breathing
