Ezzo Sausages Recalled For Possible Listeria Monocytogenes Contamination

Ezzo Sausage Company of Columbus, Ohio, is recalling about 25,115 ponds of sausage products that may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions of illness due to the consumption of these products. There are 15 Ezzo Sausages recalled, ranging from pepperoni to sausage for pizza.

These ready-to-eat sausages were produced on October 29, October 30, and November 5, 2019. A spreadsheet has the list of Ezzo Sausages that have been recalled. The recalled products include Angie’s Pizza Sausage for Pizza, Ezzo Brand Burretto Pepperoni, Creno’s Pizza Sausage For Pizza, Ezzo Sausage Chopped Pepperoni, Flyers Sliced Pepperoni, and GiAntonio Brand Pepperoni, among others. These products have the establishment number “EST. 1838A” inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were shipped to distribution centers in Indiana and Ohio.

You can see details of the recalled products on this spreadsheet. along with lot codes and case weights. And you can see pictures of labels of the recalled products at the USDA web site.

There is zero tolerance for Listeria monocytogenes bacteria in ready-to-eat products because this pathogen can cause such serious illness. The problem was discovered when the firm notified USDA of a positive sample result for Listeria monocytogenes.

If you purchased these products, do not eat them, even if you are going to cook them. Throw the products away in a sealed container, or take them back to the place of purchase for a refund.

Clean out your refrigerator or freezer with a mild bleach solution after you get rid of the items. Listeria can grow at refrigerator temperatures, and freezing doesn’t kill it.

If you ate these products, especially if they were not heated again, monitor yourself for the symptoms of listeriosis, which can take 70 days to appear. Symptoms include high fever, stiff neck, muscle aches, severe headache, and diarrhea. Pregnant women may only feel like they have a mild case of the flu, but listeriosis can cause stillbirth and miscarriage. See your doctor if you start  to feel sick.
