Ezzo Sausage Company, an Ohio-based company, has issued a class l notice recall of approximately 25,115 pounds of pepperoni pizza toppings and other ready-to-eat sausage products. This recall was after the determination that the sausage products might be tainted with a food-poisoning bug known as listeria monocytogenes.
According to the U.S Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, the recall was issued after some samples of the sausage products tested positive to listeria.
According to the recall, listeria can cause a series of health complications. Some of these complications include fever, headache, loss of balance, headache, confusion, stiff neck, confusion, convulsions, and possibly diarrhea. In extreme cases, listeria leads to other gastrointestinal signs and even death. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), yearly, 1,600 people in the U.S develop listeria, and about 260 of them usually die. Although listeria is generally harmful, it is more dangerous for older people, pregnant women, and people with a feebled immune system.
There has not been any confirmed report of sickness occurring to customers who have consumed the recalled products. Nevertheless, concerned people are encouraged to speak with qualified healthcare personnel.
The recalled items were majorly shipped for distribution in Indiana and Ohio. Subsequently, they were sent to other food institutions. FSIS has urged restaurants with the recalled products to dispose of them immediately.
