Rochester firm recalls meat wraps

Posted by: Jane Friedmann under Buyer beware, Dangerous products, Whistleblower Updated: August 6, 2012 - 5:12 PM
Reichel Foods of Rochester is recalling packages of Armour meat wraps after testing showed the food may be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Sunday.
The recall includes 5.6-ounce packages of “Armour Active Packs Turkey & Cheese Wrap” and “Armour Active Packs Ham & Cheese Wrap.”
The products have a package code of 1026090112, a “sell by” date through Sept. 1, and “P-19941” or “Est. 19941” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
Listeria infection can present flu-like symptoms and can cause meningitis or loss of a fetus. The disease usually affects older people, pregnant women, newborns and those with weakened immune systems.
There have been no reports of illness.
