What’s the Problem?
According to the U.S. Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS), this recall affects:
- 12-lb. plastic film vacuum package of “Celebrity EXTRA LEAN IMPORTED HAM 98% FAT FREE” with product codes “20309 11 – 91”, “20309 21 – 91”, “20309 31 – 91” or “20309 51 – 91” printed on the side of the packaging.
“Consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses,” FSIS said. “The most common symptoms of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 6 hours to 6 days after eating the contaminated product.”
The recalled ham was packaged on November 5, 2020, and shipped to distributors in California for further distribution for institutional use. The products feature the Canadian establishment number “180” inside the Canadian inspection mark located below the ingredient list.
Olymel S.E.C./L.P. issued this recall after the FSIS collected a sample that confirmed positive for the Salmonella Enteritidis. The recalled ham was determined by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) to be associated with the FSIS positive sample result.
If you purchased any ham that is affected by this recall, you should not eat it, and either discard it or return it to the point of purchase for a refund.
Anyone concerned about a potential salmonella illness should contact their doctor immediately.
This recall began on April 15, 2021.
