What’s the problem?
July 30, 2010 – The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced this month that K. Heeps, Inc. is recalling approximately 17.5 pounds of fully cooked turkey breast products that may be contaminated with Listeria bacteria.
The products subject to recall include:
17.5-pound package of “K. Heeps Inc. Fully Cooked, Sliced Turkey, Boneless with Broth.” The label bears the establishment number “EST. 09379A” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The sliced turkey breast products were produced on June 28, 2010, and distributed to a restaurant in Reading, Pa.
Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea. The bacteria can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weakened immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact a health care provider.
