The problem was discovered by an FSIS inspector who observed personnel making diced and sliced ham products from whole hams. The hams were labeled as fully cooked, but the company does not have a HACCP plan for fully cooked product or a Listeria control program. FSIS then discovered that other Ready-To-Eat and heat-treated products produced without HACCP plans. HACCP plans, in which establishments identify potential hazards associated with a given product, and identify a means of addressing those hazards in the production process, are required for all products.

At this time no illnesses have beeb reported in connection with the recalled products.  Anyone concerned about an illness from consumption of these products should contact a healthcare provider.
