Perfect Pasta of Addison, IL, is recalling approximately 315 pounds of ready-to-eat roast beef products due to possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.
The following product is subject to recall:
- 5-lb. packages of “GINA FULLY COOKED ROAST BEEF WITH SEASONED JUICE” with a lot code number of “040615RB” and a pack date of “02-06-13.”
The products, bearing the establishment number “EST. 19829” inside the USDA mark of inspection, were produced on February 6, 2013, and distributed to institutions in Chicago.
After the company received a positive sample for Listeria monocytogenes, most of its products were held but a portion may have been cross-contaminated as a result of equipment not being cleaned between production shifts and shipped into commerce. There are no reports of illnesses due to consumption of these products.
Consumers with questions should contact the company’s Quality Assurance Manager, Connie DeMarco, at (630) 543-8300.
