Belgrade Meat recalls tainted products over Listeria concerns


Consumers should avoid eating smoked pork and beef pepper sticks made by Belgrade Meat Center, KARE 11 reports.

The central Minnesota company issued a voluntary recall of roughly 300 pounds of fully cooked meat products after the Minnesota Department of Agriculture discovered the presence of Listeria monocytogenes bacteria in a routine sampling, according to a news release.

So far, there have been no reports of illnesses. Investigators are working to determine the source of the contamination.

The Star Tribune says some of the products, which include breakfast links, pork wieners, and smoked bratwurst, were sold at various co-op grocery stores and dinning spots in the Twin Cities, Duluth and Stillwater.
