Bologna Recall

If you live in Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, California, or Colorado, you Bologna’s first name is R-E-C-A-L-L. Yesterday, a recall was issued for 23,000 pounds of Lebanon bologna products may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause serious health consequence for all of us, most notably the very young and very old.

Each package of Bologna was made in December and has a label with establishment number “EST. 474” inside the USDA mark of inspection. You can get the details here.

Look out for:

• Whole chub packages of “SELTZER’S BEEF LEBANON BOLOGNA” with lot codes “01351” or “06337” and best-by date of “Feb. 14 2011,” “Feb. 15 2011,” “Feb. 16 2011,” or “Feb. 28 2011” printed on the package.
• Half chub packages of “SELTZER’S BEEF LEBANON BOLOGNA” with lot codes “01351” or “06337” and best-by date of “Apr. 6 2011,” “Apr. 7 2011,” “Apr. 16 2011,” or “Apr. 19 2011,” printed on the package.
• 12-pound bulk boxes of sliced “SELTZER’S BEEF LEBANON BOLOGNA” with lot code “01351” and best-by date of “Apr. 21 2011” printed on the package.

Lebanon bologna is a semi-dry sausage that looks like salami. So check out what you think is your salami too.
