Diced Ham Recalled Over Listeria Fears


Carolina Pride Foods Inc. recalled more than nine tons of boneless, diced and fully cooked ham products sold in six states because they may be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes, said the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

So far, no one has reported getting sick from eating the diced ham, sold under the brand names of Carolina Pride and Hardee's in stores in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. A list of retailers that carried the ham wasn't available, but the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service said it would release a list when it was compiled.
