If you purchased this product do not eat it, even if you plan to reheat it thoroughly before serving, because of the possibility of cross-contamination between the ham and other items in your kitchen. You can throw the ham away in a secure trash can with a tight fitting lid, or you can take it back to the store where you bought it for a full refund.

Then clean your refrigerator or freezer or wherever the ham was stored with a mild bleach solution to kill any remaining bacteria. Listeria monocytogenes can grow at refrigerator temperatures, and freezing doesn’t kill it. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling the ham and after cleaning.

If you ate this Kirkland Signature Applewood Smoked Master Carve Half Ham Boneless with Natural Juices product, monitor your health for the symptoms of listeriosis that can take up to 70 days to appear. If you do get sick, see your doctor.
