USA: Cargill Turkey Products adds one additional item to existing turkey recall
Like the other poultry products covered by the existing recall, the Turkey Ham product being added to the recall was produced solely at Cargill's facility in Waco, Texas. The product was sold in pre-packaged, unsliced form with each package weighing about two pounds, and is generally located in the fresh meat case in grocery stores. The packaging on the Turkey Ham product lists the facility's establishment number of P-635 in a small circle in the lower third of the package and indicates a use or freeze-by date before Feb. 26, 2001. A total of 196,020 additional pounds produced since May 1, 2000, are being recalled. No raw, uncooked turkey products are included in the recall.
The product was shipped to retail outlets in Colorado, Kansas, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.
The product also was shipped to a correctional facility in Minnesota. Consumers with questions about the recall may call Cargill Turkey Products at 888-621-2717 or visit the websites www.honeysucklewhite.com or www.plantation-foods.com .
Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis. Listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness, and nausea. It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weak immune systems-infants, the frail or elderly, and persons with chronic disease, with HIV infection, or taking chemotherapy. Consumers who feel they have symptoms of listeriosis should contact their physicians.
