The recall now includes more products that were produced on various dates. They include Alexander & Hornung Super Trim Boneless Ham Steak, Amish Country Fresh Brand Glazed Fully Cooked Spiral Sliced Ham, Alexander & Hornung Boneless Ham, Lancaster Brand Hickory Smoked Spiral Sliced Honey Ham, Big Y Hickory Smoked Honey Cured Spiral Sliced Ham, among others. You can see the full list of recalled products, including package sizes and sell by or best by dates, at the USDA web site. And you can see pictures of product labels too. They all have the establishment number “EST. M10125” stamped inside the USDA mark of inspection. These ham and pepperoni products were sold nationwide at the retail level.

If you bought any of these products, do not eat them, even if you plan to reheat them thoroughly. The possibility of cross-contamination between these foods and other foods and surfaces in your kitchen is too great. You can throw them away in a sealed double bagged package, or return them to the place of purchase.

You should then clean your refrigerator with a mild bleach solution to kill any pathogens. Listeria monocytogenes can grow at refrigerator temps and freezing does not kill it. Wash your hands with soap and water after handling these products and after cleaning.

If you ate any of these items, monitor yourself for the symptoms of listeriosis for the next 70 days. Those symptoms can include a high fever, stiff neck, severe headache, and muscle aches, often preceded by nausea and diarrhea. Pregnant women can suffer miscarriage and stillbirth, even though their illness seems like a case of the flu. If you do feel sick, see your doctor.
