Enslin & Son Packing Company, a Hattiesburg, Miss. establishment, is recalling approximately 314 pounds of sausage products due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
The product subject to recall is:
- 1.5-lb. and 2-lb. packages of “Cedar Grove Red Hots.”
Each package bears the number “P-31806” inside the USDA mark of inspection and contains a use or freeze by date of “09/24/2012” or “09/28/2012.” The product was produced on July 16, 2012, and distributed to retail establishments in Meridian and Philadelphia, Mississippi. When available, the retail distribution list will be posted on FSIS’ website at www.fsis.usda.gov/
The problem occurred as a result of the products testing positive for Listeria monocytogenes and being shipped prior to the company receiving test results. FSIS and the company have received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of this product.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
Consumers and media with questions about the recall should contact the company’s President, Augustus Enslin, at (601) 582-9300.
