Sell by dates range from "9/13/2013" through "11/4/2013", and the USDA inspection mark may read "P-17999".

The firm's investigation has identified a possible source of the contamination, but the FSIS is continuing to work with federal and state public health partners, including the U.S. Health and Human Services' Food and Drug Administration and the MADPH and NHDPH.  

Consuming listeria-contaminated food can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women and their newborns. No illnesses have been reported so far.

Consumers with food safety questions can "Ask Karen," the FSIS virtual representative available  24 hours a day at AskKaren.gov. The toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) is available in English and Spanish and can be reached from l0 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday. Recorded food safety messages are available 24 hours a day. The online Electronic Consumer Complaint Monitoring System can be accessed 24 hours a day at: http://www.fsis.usda.gov/reportproblem.
