More Than 300,000 Pounds of Meat Recalled Over Listeria Contamination

food recalls

Over 300,000 pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat meat products have been recalle across the country. The affected products, distributed by New Jersey-based Buona Vita Inc, may be contaminated with listeria.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), the risk related to the recall is "high." Meatballs, chicken and beef patties, and loafs of chicken and beef are all affected. The FSIS website has a full list of recalled meat and poultry products.

In 2011, more than 30 people died after contracting listeriosis from listeria-contaminated cantaloupe. Listeriosis has a long incubation period, and symptoms may not appear until two months after contaminated food is eaten. Symptoms of listeria food poisoning can include muscle aches, fever, stiff neck, headache, confusion, loss of balance, and diarrhea.
