Owingsville company recalling meat products over Listeria concerns

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WTVQ) – An Owingsville company is issuing a recall more than 6,000 pounds of ready-to-eat products over a potential Listeria contamination.

The United States Department of Agriculture announced Tuesday that CTI Foods LLC, of Owingsville, is recalling approximately 6,720 pounds of ready-to-eat (RTE) Philly Beef Steak products that may be adulterated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The Philly Beef Steak products were produced on August 9 and were shipped to a food service warehouse in Hamilton, Ohio and were further distributed to food service locations.

The USDA says the problem was discovered on September 7, when CTI Foods received results from their laboratory that four finished product samples were potentially positive for Listeria monocytogenes.

It says the product under recall is 672 cardboard cases labeled Classic Sysco having a NET WT of 10 lbs. The cardboard cases contain four 2.5 lb. bags of product. Both the box and the bags are labeled “FULLY COOKED PHILLY BEEF STEAK SLICED Caramel Color Added” with a package code of 4887097.

The USDA says there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the products.
