Malone's Recalls Pork Head Cheese Due to Listeria
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 10/12/2018

The Milwaukee-based Malone's Fine Sausage Inc. is recalling approximately 26,300 pounds of ready-to-eat pork head cheese product that may be adulterated with Listeria monocytogenes. The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced that the ready-to-eat pork head cheese items were produced on various dates from August 27 through October 5

Consumption of food contaminated with L. monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women and their newborns. Less commonly, persons outside these risk groups are affected.

Listeriosis can cause fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms. An invasive infection spreads beyond the gastrointestinal tract. In pregnant women, the infection can cause miscarriages, stillbirths, premature delivery or life-threatening infection of the newborn.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
