Reser’s issues expanded recall of food products

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Alaska officials say Reser’s Fine Foods has again expanded a recall of products available in retail stores and distributed to food services in the state.

The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation says the recall now includes chicken, beef and ham products produced at a salad facility in Topeka, Kan., between Oct. 10 and Oct. 25.

The DEC says the products may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes (mon-oh-SITE’-o-jeens).

Listeria can cause fever, nausea, severe headache, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Officials say it can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and people with weak immune systems.

According to the DEC, other recalled Reser’s products include salads, salsas, spreads, dips and baked beans.

Officials say no illnesses have been reported in the state or elsewhere.
