Alexander & Hornung recently issued a voluntary recall for certain pork products that may be contaminated with listeria.
If you’re a fan of pork, listen up. Earlier this week, Alexander & Hornung, a division of Perdue Premium Meat Co., Inc., announced a recall for more than 230,000 pounds of pork over concerns it may be contaminated with listeria. Listeria mas cause serious and sometimes fatal infections, according to the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

Fortunately, there haven’t been confirmed reports of consumers falling ill. If you have the affected products in your home, you should either throw them away or return them for a refund. If you have additional questions or concerns about the recall, contact the Alexander & Hornung Consumer Hotline at 1-866-866-3703.
