A statement posted Saturday on company’s website says the recalled meats were produced at Manda’s facility in Baker, La. between Feb. 27 and April 9.
The USDA said eating food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease.
“Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis,” the statement said. But the disease can be serious and sometimes fatal for those with weakened immune systems, and it can cause miscarriages and stillbirths.
“We are committed to work with USDA in reviewing and enhancing our food safety system so we can continue to ensure that our products are safe, wholesome and worthy of our brand name,” Josh Yarborough, director of quality assurance for Manda, said in Saturday’s statement.
