Thousands of Pounds of Meat Recalled in the US

A deadly bacteria was detected in a line of prepared meat products, resulting in a mass recall throughout the United States and Canada.

Earlier this week, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency discovered a possible contamination of Listeria monocytogenes bacterium in a slew of prepared meat products from the Reser’s Fine Foods company in Topeka, KS. This resulted in the US Department of Agriculture recalling more than 22,000 pounds of chicken, ham, and beef that had been distributed to nearly 30 states including Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Tennesse, as well as Canada. While there have not been any health concerns related to the bacteria contamination so far, Listeria monocytogenes can cause infections that are especially harmful to older adults and pregnant women, and can result in miscarriages and premature delivery, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
