FSIS Announces Hot Dog Recall Due to Possible Listeria Contamination

The USDA’s Food Safety Inspection Service has announced the recall of approximately 2,048 pounds of Espi’s Sausage and Tocino Co. chicken and pork hot dog products “that may be adulterated with Listeria monocytogenes.” FSIS discovered that the producer had confirmation from a third-party lab that a product contact surface had tested positive for listeria, after the products already had been shipped to a distributor in California and further distributed to retail locations.
