Cincinnati, OH (SafetyAlerts) - United States Department of Agriculture, Food Safety and Inspection Service, (FSIS) said that John Morrell & Co. has recalled approximately approximately 140,000 pounds of franks and hot dogs that may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

All products were produced on March 5, and distributed to retail establishments nationwide.

The following products subject to recall bear "P-2564" inside the USDA seal of inspection:

· 12-ounce packages of "FMV Serve 'N Save HOT DOGS MADE WITH CHICKEN AND PORK" marked with a date code of "Sell by May 14,"

· 12-ounce packages of "Rath Black Hawk HOT DOGS MADE WITH CHICKEN AND PORK" marked with a date code of "Sell by May 14,"

· 12-ounce packages of "PEYTON'S FRANKS MADE WITH CHICKEN AND PORK" marked with a date code of "Sell by Jun 13," and

· 12-ounce packages of "Rodeo Franks MADE WITH CHICKEN AND PORK" marked with a date code of "Sell by Jun 13."

The following products subject to recall bear "EST. 296" inside the USDA seal of inspection:

· 16-ounce packages of "TOPS Franks BUN LENGTH" marked with a date code of "Sell by May 14,"

· 16-ounce packages of "Wilson Farms BUN LENGTH Franks" marked with a date code of "Sell by May 14," and

· 10-pound boxes, each containing two 5-pound unmarked plastic bags, of "JOHN MORRELL FOODSERVICE BLACK LABEL GOURMET BEEF FRANKS" marked with a date code of "064."

Additionally, 16-ounce packages of "JOHN MORRELL BUN LENGTH Franks MADE WITH CHICKEN AND PORK," bearing "P-2564" inside the USDA seal of inspection and marked with a date code of "Sell by May 14," were distributed to retail establishments nationwide and to military commissaries.

"Because of the potential for foodborne illness, we want consumers to be aware of the recall," said Linda Swacina, assistant administrator. "If they find the recalled products, consumers should not eat them, but return them to the point of purchase."

The problem was reported to FSIS by John Morrell & Co.

Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis. Listeriosis can cause high fever, sever headache, neck stiffness, and nausea. Listeriosis can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weak immune systems - infants, the frail or elderly, and persons with chronic disease, with HIV infection, or taking chemotherapy.

FSIS has received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of this product. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a physician.

Media with questions about the recall may contact David Bartlett, vice president, Rowan & Blewitt, Inc., at (703) 234-4428. Consumers with questions about the recall may contact the John Morrell & Co. consumer hotline at (800) 414-0600.
