Additional information:
The United States Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) reports the following Imported Ham products were packaged on November 5, 2020 and are subject to this recall:

  • Celebrity branded Extra Lean Imported Ham 98% Fat Free, marketed, sold and delivered in twelve (12)-pound vacuum packages with product codes “20309 11 – 91”, “20309 21 – 91”, “20309 31 – 91”, “20309 41 – 91” or “20309 51 – 91” printed on the side of the packaging.

==> No barcodes, UPCs, NDCs, DINs, item numbers, best-before date codes, manufacturing date codes, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation. One (1) additional image of the recalled Ham products can be found on the Web site above.

The problem was discovered when the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (“FSIS”) collected a routine product import sample that confirmed positive for the presence of Salmonella Enteritidis­­­. The product subject to recall was determined by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (“CFIA”) to be associated with the FSIS positive sample result.

According to the USDA, the Ham products subject to recall bear Canadian Establishment Number 180 inside the Canadian inspection mark located below the ingredient list. These items were shipped to distributors in California for further distribution for institutional use. As a direct result of this suspected defect, you should neither serve nor consume the recalled Ham products identified above.

==> For information about Salmonellosis (Salmonella poisoning), please consult the “Illnesses” tab on this site, located at the top of this page.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure small children and pets can’t access the suspect food.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Celebrity Extra Lean Imported Ham 98% Fat Free products, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to properly treat bacterial poisonings such as Salmonellosis.
