Secondary Recalls in Johnston County Ham Recall Listeria Outbreak

Secondary recalls have been popping up in the Johnston County Hams Listeria monocytogenes outbreak. The original Johnston County ham recall was issued on October 3, 2018. Secondary recalls mean that a recalled food was used to make other types of products. We will keep a running list of secondary recalls here so you can stay up to date.

Johnston County Ham Recall Listeria Monocytogenes


In this Listeria monocytogenes outbreak four people, who lived in North Carolina and Virginia,  were sickened. All four were hospitalized. One person, who lived in Virginia, died.

The originally Johnston County Ham recall included Johnston County Hams, Inc. Country Style Fully Cooked Boneless Deli Ham; Ole Fashioned Sugar Cured The Old Dominion Brand Hams Premium Fully Cooked Country Ham with sell-by dates from 4/10/2018 to 9/27/2019; Padow’s Hams & Deli, Inc. Fully Cooked Country ham Boneless Glazed with Brown Sugar; Premium Fully Cooked Country Ham Less Salt Distributed by Valley Country Hams, LLC. with sell-by dates from 4/10/2018 to 9/27/2019; and Goodnight Brothers Country Ham Boneless Fully Cooked. They have the establishment number “EST.M2646” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

Here are the secondary recalls linked to the original Johnston County Ham recall:

Ladyfingers Gourmet to Go is recalling Signature Shaved Country Ham Rolls. One illness has been linked to this recalled item.

Callie’s Charleston Biscuits is recalling 89,096 pounds of Country Ham Biscuits and Cocktail Ham Biscuits. No illnesses are reported to date in connection with these products.

Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods is recalling ready-to-eat meat and poultry products because they may have been made with Johnston Country ham products. No illnesses have been reported to the company in connection with these recalled products.

If you have purchased any of these products, get rid of them. You can discard them in a trash can, or take them back for a refund. It’s a good idea to then clean and sanitize your fridge and freezer to kill any remaining Listeria monocytogenes bacteria. That bacteria can grow at fridge temperatures, and freezing doesn’t kill it. Combine 1 tablespoon liquid chlorine bleach with 1 gallon of warm water and wipe down the appliances and any packages stored in them. Follow these five steps to cleaning your fridge.
