Recall on Buona Vita, Inc. Ready-To-Eat Meat and Poultry Products

Springfield, Mass. (WGGB) — A New Jersey firm is recalling various frozen, ready to eat meat and poultry products because they are possibly contaminated with Listeria Monocytogenes.

That’s according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) who made the announcement Thursday.

Buona Vita, Inc., a Bridgeton, N.J. establishment, is recalling approximately 72,510 pounds of their products. The list can be found further down in this article.

All the products were produced on June 26.

The packages bear the establishment number “P-954” or “Est. 954” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were sold to distribution facilities nationwide.

The problem was discovered through microbiological testing by a third party. FSIS and the company have not received reports of illnesses due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a healthcare provider.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
