This product has the establishment number “EST 17863” stamped inside the USDA mark of inspection. These pork items were shipped to institutions, including schools, in North Carolina.

Listeriosis can cause symptoms of a high fever, muscle aches, severe headache, stiff neck, confusion, and loss of balance, that are sometimes preceded by nausea and diarrhea. Pregnant women may think they have a mild case of the flu, but this infection can cause miscarriage, premature labor, and stillbirth. If you have been ill with these symptoms, see your doctor.
