HoneyBaked Foods Recalls 47K Pounds of Ham, Turkey

Posted November 25, 2006 4:19 p.m. EST

The HoneyBaked Foods company has recalled nearly 47,000 pounds of ham and turkey products due to possible contamination with Listeria.

Listeria is a microorganism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in children, the elderly or those with weakened immune systems. It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Healthy adults can also experience symptoms such as fever, severe headaches, nausea and diarrhea.

The recalled products include six to 11-pound packages of "sliced and glazed fully cooked half ham" and 12 to 16-pound packages of whole ham. HoneyBaked also recalled 3-pound packages of "sliced and glazed cooked boneless turkey breast" as well as the smoked version of the turkey.

The glazed ham and turkey was produced between Sept. 5 and Nov. 13, and was sold through the company's catalog, on the Internet and at HoneyBaked stores and kiosks in the Toledo, Ohio, region. The company has contacted catalog customers who purchased these products.

For more information about the recall, company officials asked customers to call 1-800-461-3998 or 1-866-492-4267.
