Louisiana-based Manda Packing Company is expanding its recall of meat, poultry and deli products due to the possibility of listeria monocytogenes contamination.

The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service stated that the company is recalling 468,000 pounds of roast beef, ham, turkey breast, tasso pork, ham shanks, hog head cheese, corned beef and pastrami due to possible contamination of the bacteria. The USDA said that the products may have been sliced at retail deli's and may not have packaging information.

According to the USDA, the products were shipped for sale at retail, and to retail deli stores in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.

The Food Safety and Inspection Service said they were alerted to the problem by the Tennessee Department of Agriculture after a sample of cooked roast beef from a retail establishment tested positive for listeria monocytogenes. The recall is being expanded because additional samples from additional production dates tested positive for the bacteria.

While there have been no reports of illnesses associated with the consumption of the products, the USDA cautions people about the danger of listeria monocytogenes. The bacteria can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea. It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in people with weakened immune systems.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact the USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Monday thru Friday at 1-888-674-6854 or Josh Yarborough,  the Director of Quality Assurance and Food Safety, at 225-344-7636 ext. 59. People can also ask food safety questions online at www.AskKaren.gov.
