WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Canadian meat processing company Freybe Sausage Ltd. is recalling about 400 pounds of sliced ham and salami that may be contaminated with listeria.
The Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service's recall notice said the health risk was considered high.
''Because of the potential for foodborne illness, we urge consumers to check their refrigerators. If they find the recalled products, consumers should not eat them, but return them to the point of purchase,'' FSIS acting administrator Margaret Glavin said Friday in a statement.
The products subject to recall are 4.4 ounce packages of Freybe ''French Brand Herb Salami'' with a best before date of ''OC 06;'' 4.4 ounce and random weight packages of Freybe ''Hungarian Brand Salami'' with a best before date of ''OC 18;'' and 4.4 ounce packages of Freybe ''Westfalian Ham'' with best before dates of ''AU 09'' and ''AU 10.''
