Certain Rose & Shore Meat Co. Products Recalled Due to Listeria Contamination

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), Rose & Shore Meat Co., a California company, has recalled approximately 15,900 pounds of ready-to-eat deli meat products that may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The products subject to recall include:

  • 40 to 50 pound boxes containing packages of “OLYMPIC GOLD BEEF PASTRAMI” with the lot number “20911” and a “04-05-11” pack date on the outside of each box. Each package has the lot number “20911” and lot code “10951.”
  • 40 to 50 pound boxes containing packages of “ROSE AND SHORE N.Y. STYLE PASTRAMI” with the lot number “20911” and a “04-05-11” pack date as well as a “29 N.Y.” case code on the outside of each box. Each package has the lot number “20911” and lot code “10951.”
  • 9 to 13 pound boxes containing “COOKED ANGUS ROAST BEEF” with lot number “20941” and a use by date of “05-17-11.” Each package has the lot number “20941” and a use by date of “05-17-11.”
  • 24 to 30 pound boxes containing packages of “TOGO’S PASTRAMI” with the lot number “20911”, a “04-05-11” pack date and a use by date of “05-23-11” on the outside of each box. Each package has the lot number “20911” and a use by date of “05-23-11.”

Each box has “EST. 1821” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were produced on April 5, 2011, and sent to distribution centers in California for further distribution to food service establishments in Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. There were no retail sales of the products.

The problem was discovered after a consumer complaint prompted a commercial customer to request that the company test the deli meats.  FSIS has received no confirmed reports of illnesses associated with consumption of this product at this time.

Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis. However, listeriosis can have severe symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea. Listeriosis can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weakened immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact a health care provider.
