The product also bears the establishment number “625” inside the State of Minnesota mark of inspection and a “use by date” of 11-14-2017 on the label. Thirty (30) pounds were produced in the batch and 18 pounds have been accounted for.
The ring bologna was sold at the following locations:
Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially serious disease marked by fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea. Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis, but it can sometimes cause fatal infections in infants, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems. Listeriosis can also lead to miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women.
Anyone concerned about illness should contact a healthcare provider. Consumers who purchased this product should throw it away or return it to the store. Consumers with questions about the recall can contact A&M Processing at 952-467-3261.
