April 6, 2010: Minnisota Firm Recalls Ham

On April 4, 2010, the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced that Lorentz Meats, Cannon Falls, Minnesota, is recalling approximately 100 pounds of ham products that may be contaminated with the foodborne pathogen Listeria monocytogenes.

The following ham products are subject to the Listeria recall:

  • Various sizes of whole or half ham packages of “KOWALSKI’S Markets, FULLY COOKED, SMOKED HAM, Naturally Smoked with Hardwoods, KEEP REFRIGERATED.” Each package bears a freeze by date “FREEZE BY 05/14/10” as well as the establishment number “Est. 21207” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The recalled ham was produced on March 12, 2010, and distributed to retail establishments in the Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota area.

Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis. However, listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea. Listeriosis 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 physician.
