Health Alert Issued for Various Ready-To-Eat Deli Meat Products

Washington, DC: The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is issuing a public health alert for various ready-to-eat deli meat products because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Products exported to the United States include, but are not limited to, the following:
"Casa Italia Gastronomia Prosciutto"
"Casa Italia Gastronomia Prosciutto Boneless"
"Casa Italia Gastronomia Prosciutto Mattonella"
"Casa Italia Prosciutto Boneless"
"Casa Italia Prosciutto Boneless Sliced"
"Casa Italia Prosciutto Ham Sliced"
"Emma Dry Prosciutto"

Implicated products were produced by Zadi Foods Ltd., CFIA Establishment 665, located in Brampton, Ontario, and may have been distributed to retail locations nationwide. The products would have been sold to consumers at deli counters, and the original brand may not have been transferred at the deli counters to consumer packages.

Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis. However, listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea. Listeriosis can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weakened immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy.
