A Wisconsin-based company has recalled ready-to-eat food products due to possible contamination.

In a prepared release, the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service stated that Garden Fresh Foods of Milwaukee has recalled 19,054 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken and ham products due to possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes otherwise known as Listeria. The problem was discovered through microbiological testing at the company's facility after the products were distributed to retail and food service establishments nationwide.  

The company previously announced that the products have been recalled in conjunction with other foods regulated by the Food and Drug Administration. Products regulated by the Food Safety and Inspection Service have the establishment number "EST. 17256" or "Est. P-17256" inside the USDA Mark of inspection.

A spokesperson for the FSIS said that they have not received any reports of illnesses due to the products and anyone concerned about an illness should contact a healthcare provider immediately.
