7,000 Pounds of Canadian Ham Recalled for Salmonella Risk

7,000 Pounds of Canadian Ham Recalled for Salmonella Risk

April 19, 2021 — A Canadian company recalled nearly 7,000 pounds of ready-to-eat ham in the U.S. after a product tested positive for Salmonella Enteritidis.

Olymel S.E.C./L.P., of Quebec, Canada, recalled about 6,804 pounds of ham in the U.S.

The ham was sold in 12-pound plastic vacuum-packs that were labeled with: “Celebrity EXTRA LEAN IMPORTED HAM 98% FAT FREE” and product codes of 20309 11 – 91, 20309 21 – 91, 20309 31 – 91, 20309 41 – 91, or 20309 51 – 91.

The products were packaged on November 5, 2020.

The recall was announced after a routine test by the USDA Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) was positive for the Salmonella Enteritidis­­­. No illnesses were reported as of April 15, 2021.

Salmonella is a bacteria that can cause serious food poisoning infections, with symptoms like diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever. Some patients must be hospitalized due to severe diarrhea, dehydration, or other complications.
