Armour Active Packs Recalled Due to Possible Listeria Contamination
Reichel Foods is recalling nearly 16,000 pounds of ready-to-eat meat and poultry products due to possible listeria contamination. The ready-to-eat meat and poultry products were included in Armour Active Packs.
Armour Active Packs are a packaged lunch targeted to kids. The two recalled Active Packs are the ham and cheese wraps and turkey and cheese wraps. Each pack includes two whole grain wraps, ham or turkey, reduced-fat cheese, and ranch sauce for the main course, plus apple slices and caramel dip for dessert.
The listeria was discovered by Reichel Foods, through a third-party testing system. The recall covers products produced between July 23, 2012, and July 26, 2012, with a “sell by” date through Sept. 1, 2012. The Active Packs were sent to distribution centers in Indiana, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and Texas, but may have been shipped to stores in other states from those distribution centers. The packages bear the establishment number “P-19941″ or “Est. 19941″ inside the USDA mark of inspection.
No illnesses have been reported in connection with this recall. Consumers can return any recalled Armour Active Packs to the store where they purchased them.
