Recall issued for Amana Meat Shop pickled ham product
AMANA, Iowa (KCRG) - Amana Meat Shop is recalling 1.25 pound jars of its “pickled ham” product due to the Thompson International, Inc. onion recall.
This comes after the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service issued a public health alert for the onions used in Amana Meat Shop’s pickled ham product because they could be contaminated with Salmonella.
The recalled pickled ham products were distributed in retail stores in the Midwest and through mail orders nationwide, and were sold from May 15 to August 6.
The pickled ham product comes in 1.25 pound, clear glass jars with the following codes: E2620, F0320, F3720, F5420, G0620, G1720, and G3920.
So far no illnesses have been reported due to the recalled product.
Salmonella can cause symptoms including fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. It can cause serious, sometimes fatal, infections in young children, frail, elderly, or those with weakened immune systems.
