At this time, these illnesses have not been confirmed by laboratory testing, nor has a medical professional diagnosed them. The consumers involved in these reports are located in California, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, Mississippi, Nevada and Texas. 

On Monday (27 November) a recall was issued on cooked ham and turkey products from HoneyBaked Foods. The recall was issued because the products concerned may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
 
The products were sold nationwide through Internet and telephone catalogue sales as well as at retail establishments and kiosks.
