Ham Recalled for Possible Listeria Contamination

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 3-Aug-2011

A reported 18,416 pounds of boneless, fully cooked ham products produced by Carolina Pride Foods, Inc., of Greenwood, South Carolina, has been liked to the dangerous foodborne pathogen, Listeria Monocytogenes, reports say.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced a recall, designated as a Class I, which suggests a possible serious health hazard situation.

The ham and ham products were produced mid-May and distributed throughout the southeastern United States with 10-ounce vacuum packages of CAROLINA PRIDE Smoked Diced Ham and 8-ounce vacuum packages of HARDEE's Smoked Diced Ham with the use through date of November 9, 2011 stamped on the package.

Sampling by third-party microbiologists discovered the possible Listeria contamination, but there have been no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products.

During the recall, the families of the ill will likely have questions. In a tragedy like this one, survivors' questions need to be addressed by experts.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
