Nearly 8 Tons of Deli Meat Recalled

A California company is recalling approximately 15,900 pounds of ready-to-eat deli pastrami and roast beef that may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Friday. 

Rose & Shore Meat Co. of Vernon, CA said the problem was discovered after the company tested product at the request of a commercial customer who had received a consumer complaint.

FSIS said it has not received any confirmed reports of illnesses associated with these meats. 

The deli meats were produced on April 5, 2011, and shipped to distribution centers in California for further distribution to food service establishments in Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. There were no retail sales. 

The products being recalled include:

 

40 to 50 pound boxes containing packages of “OLYMPIC GOLD BEEF PASTRAMI” with the lot number “20911” and a “04-05-11” pack date on the outside of each box. Each package has the lot number “20911” and lot code “10951.”

40 to 50 pound boxes containing packages of “ROSE AND SHORE N.Y. STYLE PASTRAMI” with the lot number “20911” and a “04-05-11” pack date as well as a “29 N.Y.” case code on the outside of each box. Each package has the lot number “20911” and lot code “10951.”

9 to 13 pound boxes containing “COOKED ANGUS ROAST BEEF” with lot number “20941” and a use by date of “05-17-11.” Each package has the lot number “20941” and a use by date of “05-17-11.”

24 to 30 pound boxes containing packages of “TOGO’S PASTRAMI” with the lot number “20911”, a “04-05-11” pack date and a use by date of “05-23-11” on the outside of each box. Each package has the lot number “20911” and a use by date of “05-23-11.”

Each box bears EST. 1821 inside the USDA mark of inspection. 

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. 

Questions about the recall should be directed to Larry Vanden Bos, vice president, at 323-826-2144, ext. 110.
