More than 200,000 pounds of cooked ham and pepperoni products are being recalled because they may be contaminated with harmful bacteria, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
Alexander & Hornung, a business unit of Perdue Premium Meat Company, Inc., issued the recall after being notified by health officials that "product sampling reported positive listeria monocytogenes results," according to the FSIS.
