Oscar Mayer Ham Cheese Loaf recalled over possible cross-contamination

A recalled 2,400 pounds of Oscar Mayer Ham Cheese Loaf are being recalled over possible cross-contamination with under-processed products, according to the Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

On October 10, the company's ready-to- eat products were produced and shipped to distribution centers in Ohio and Virginia, and distributed for retail sales.

The problem was first discovered when the establishment notified FSIS that the product had been sliced using the same equipment as a product that had been under-processed.

The equipment was not cleaned between the products, leading to cross-contamination concerns.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. FSIS said that anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

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

The ham and cheese loaf packages contain codes from 07 Feb: 40 7 B through 07 Feb: 16 7 B on the label.
