Zweigle's Inc. recalled about 2,997 pounds of Price Chopper German Bologna sold in Price Chopper deli counters throughout the Northeast because it could be contaminated with staphylococcus aureus, said the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

So far, no illnesses have been reported from eating the meat, the USDA said. What happened was the meat plant smokehouse malfunctioned. The plant recooked the bologna and sent it to a distribution center in New York, the agency said. The meat went to Price Chopper stores throughout the Northeast. USDA didn't elaborate on which states received the lunch meat.
