The Idaho firm LJD Holdings, Inc., doing business as B and D Foods, a Boise, Idaho establishment, is recalling approximately 33,500 pounds of fully cooked meat and poultry products due to possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.
According to B and D Foods website , "B and D Foods was founded in 1972 to supply its Signature Finger Steak to a chain of fast food restaurants. Since 1972 the company has grown and expanded to include several size and batter varieties of Finger Steaks, Pork Nuggets, and a variety of chicken products."
The products subject to recall include:
The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “EST. 6266” or “Est. P-6266” inside the USDA mark of inspection, as well as an identifying case code of “110622.” The products were produced on Dec. 6, 2012, and distributed to foodservice and institutional customers, as well as an industrial customer in the distribution areas noted above.
The problem was discovered by the company through microbiological testing and the products are being recalled due to concerns of cross-contamination. FSIS and the company have not received reports of illnesses due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
