First it was eggs.

Now, the government is recalling deli meat.

380-thousand pounds of it.

The U-S Department of Agriculture says the deli products made at Zemco Industries -- a division of Tyson Foods -- in Buffalo, New York, may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The products were distributed to a number of delis and processed into sandwiches.
Listeria can cause a high fever, severe headache, a stiff neck and nausea among pregnant woman, newborns, and adults with weakened immune systems.

The recalled packages are marked with vendor number "398412808."
They were produced between June 18 and July 2 --
And have "use by" dates ranging from August 20th to September 10, 2010.

    They always tell pregnant women not to eat deli meat at all, but my Dr said it was fine, but THIS is what you have to look out for.

    I live in Buffalo - and our major newspaper didnt even identify the company who's product was tainted. It's as if to keep us eating other TYSON stuff ... or to keep stock prices high ... who knows why?
