US company's massive meat and poultry recall

A New York meat firm has voluntarily recalled approx. 286,320 pounds of fresh and frozen meat and poultry products due to possible Lysteria contamination, said the USDA's FSIS.

It has been reported that the recall stretches across so many products, on a nationwide scale, that it is being called one of the biggest meat recalls in history.
The problem was discovered through microbiological sampling by FSIS and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. FSIS has received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of products subject to this recall.
Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease.
