Ham recall due to Listeria contamination

Time to take a look through your kitchen cupboards.

Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are at highest risk for serious problems. Death is a possibility in worst cases. Pregnant women may have only mild symptoms, however the infection can lead to premature delivery, infection of the newborn, or stillbirth.  

There have been no reports of illnesses at this point. 

Brand Name: Ripple Creek Farm Hickory Smoked Spiral Sliced Ham

Code: Best Before 2014 FE 13
