Wis. company expands chicken, ham recall again
Story By Associated Press

MILWAUKEE - A Milwaukee company is recalling 50 more tons of chicken and ham products, the third time in two months that Garden-Fresh Foods Inc. initiated a recall over contamination concerns.

The latest recall was announced Friday by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Officials were concerned the food was possibly contaminated with a microbe known as listeria.

The products include several varieties of ham and chicken salads. The USDA has the full list of products on its website: http://1.usa.gov/1ikcXLo .

A message left with the company Saturday was not immediately returned.

Garden-Fresh first recalled more than 9 tons of food in September. It recalled an additional 6,700 pounds this month.

The USDA says the recall was initiated following results of microbial testing. There have been no reports of illnesses.
