Over 85,000 pounds of deli meat has been recalled: Here’s why

Patriot-News - 4/30/2024

ConSup North America Inc. of Lincoln Park, N.J., is recalling approximately 85,984 pounds of ready-to-eat, sliced prosciutto ham produced in Germany without the benefit of equivalent inspection, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

Announced on April 24, the prosciutto ham that’s being recalled comes in 5.29-oz. plastic packages containing the phrase, “Stockmeyer PROSCIUTTO Product of GERMANY,” with lot codes 09118-3A, 09118-3B, 09120-3A, 09120-3B, 13133-3A, 13133-3B, 13104-3A, 13104-3B, 13105-3A, 13105-3B, 13109-3A and 13109-3B, and “best before” dates of 4/28/2024, 5/26/2024, 7/7/2024, 8/4/2024, 8/11/2024 and 10/7/2024.

The ham was produced on various dates between Sept. 25, 2023, through March 6, and was shipped to retail locations in California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia and Washington.

The issue was discovered when Germany’s Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety notified FSIS that H. Klümper GmbH & Co. KG, a German establishment, produced a portion of the identified lots without the benefit of equivalent inspection and exported them to the U.S. for disruption.

Currently, there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. If you’re concerned about a reaction, contact your healthcare provider.

There is concern from the FSIS that some of the ham could be in consumers’ or retailers’ refrigerators. If you purchased this product, don’t consume it. Either throw it away or return it to the place of purchase.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify that firms notify their consumers of the recall and that steps are taken to make sure the product is no longer in stores.

When available, a retail distribution list will be posted at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
