The USDA/FSIS reported that Kraft Heinz Foods Company (Kirksville, MO) recalled ~ 2,400 pounds of ready-to-eat ham and cheese loaf products due to possible cross-contamination with under-processed products. The ready-to-eat ham and cheese loaf products were produced on Oct. 10, 2022.
The recalled products are packaged in 16-oz. rigid vacuum-packed packages containing “Oscar Mayer Ham & Cheese LOAF” with codes from “Feb. 07 2023 20:40 7B” through “Feb. 07 2023 22:16 7B” on the label. These items were shipped to distribution centers in Ohio and Virginia and further distributed for retail sales. The company notified FSIS that the product was sliced on the same equipment as a product that had been under processed. The equipment was not cleaned between runs of the under-processed and fully cooked product. This has led to concerns of possible cross-contamination of the fully cooked ham and cheese loaf product. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to the consumption of these products. @ https://www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls-alerts/kraft-heinz-foods-company-recalls-ready-eat-ham-and-cheese-loaf-products-due
