Kansas food distributor issues product recall

Posted: Updated:

Reser's Fine Foods, a Topeka, Kan. establishment, is expanding its recall of chicken, ham and beef products to include all products produced between Sept. 5 and Oct. 9, 2013.  


This is in addition to the 22,800 pounds of product recalled just last week. The products are being recalled due to possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Sunday. 

The company announced that these products are being recalled in conjunction with other foods regulated by the Food and Drug Administration.

Products subject to this expansion of the recall include the following:

-          Block and Barrel Imperial Gourmet White Meat Chicken Salad.

-          Chef Solutions Cranberry Pecan White Meat Chicken Salad.

-          Dillon's Ham Salad.

-          Cobble Street Market Chicken Salad.

-          Kroger BBQ Beans with Beef & Sauce.

-          Miller's BBQ Beans with Beef.

-          Mrs. Weaver's Ham Salad.

-          Mrs. Weaver's Chicken Salad.

-          Reser's Fine Chicken Salad.

-          Reser's Fine Foods Smoked Chicken.

 The problem was discovered through microbiological testing by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. A preliminary investigation and follow-up testing by FDA at the facility determined there was potential cross contamination of products with Listeria monocytogenes from product contact surfaces.  

Upon further review, the company determined that products produced on additional dates should be recalled. FSIS and the company have not received reports of illnesses due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a healthcare provider. 

 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 Reser's Fine Foods Consumer Hotline at 1-888-257-7913 (8 a.m. – 8 p.m. Eastern Time).
