  • NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The U.S. Department of Agriculture says a Louisiana-based meat packing company has expanded a recall of meat products because of possible bacterial contamination. No illnesses have been reported

    The Manda Packing Company recall announced this past week now includes 468,000 pounds of roast beef, ham, turkey breast, tasso pork, ham shanks, hog headcheese, corned beef, and pastrami.

    The agriculture department said Friday the products were recalled because of possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

    The products were shipped to retailers in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.

    The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service listed eight types of meat sold under 41 different names with various “sell by” dates. Its news release said some of the products may have been sliced at retail delis, and if so will not bear packaging information.
