E. G. Emils & Sons, Inc., a Philadelphia, Pa. establishment, is recalling approximately 5,896 pounds of deli ham product that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
The following product is subject to USDA recall:
- “Wegman’s Food You Feel Good About Organic Ham,” Wegman’s Private Label with pack lot numbers 14941309, 14941310 and 14941311.
This product bears “EST 9935” inside the USDA mark of inspection on the labels and was produced May 29, 2014.
