Kraft Heinz pulled thousands of pounds of lunch meat from stores due to suspected cross-contamination with under-processed items.
The Food Safety and Inspection Service recalled 2,400 pounds of Oscar Meyer's ready-to-eat Ham and Cheese Loaf on December 5.
Kraft Heinz informed the FSIS that the ham and cheese loaf was cut on the same machinery as under-processed items and not cleaned between uses, prompting the recall.
16-ounce vacuum-packed packets with the establishment number "Est. 537V" within the USDA mark of inspection and label codes from "07 Feb 2023 20:40 7B" to
"07 Feb 2023 22:16 7B" are recalled. The deli products were prepared on Oct. 10, 2022, and sent to Ohio and Virginia distribution locations before reaching shops.
The FSIS recommends throwing out or returning the ham and cheese bread, even if there have been no reported adverse reactions. Concerned patients should consult a doctor.

Kraft Heinz recalled another product this year. In August, the business recalled 5,760 containers of Wild Cherry-flavored Capri Sun due to diluted cleaning fluid contamination.
The firm found the issue when customers complained about the juice's flavour.
