The USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service has issued a recall notice for ham packaged by Byron Center Meats, and distributed in Michigan and Indiana. The FSIS says abut 6,500 pounds of ham products present a high health risk because they were produced without a Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP) plan.

An FSIS inspector observed establishment personnel making diced and sliced ham products from whole hams. These hams were labeled as fully cooked, but the company does not have a HACCP plan for fully cooked product or a Listeria control program, according to the USDA press release.

The following products are included in the recall:

  • Various weight packages of “Seven Sons Family Farms & Co.” Diced Ham (fully cooked), Smoked Ham Sliced (ready to cook/fully cooked) and Smoked Ham Roast (ready to cook/fully cooked).
  • Various weight packages of “Heffron Farms” Diced Ham (ready to cook), Smoked Ham Sliced (ready to cook), Smoked Ham Roast(ready to cook), Ground Ham Smoked Pork, Smoked Ham Hocks (ready to cook) and Picnic Hams (ready to cook).
  • Various weight packages of “Byron Center Meats” Semi Boneless Ham (ready to cook), Canadian Bacon (not fully cooked), Smoked Ham Hocks, Smoked Pork Chops (ready to cook) and Smoked Picnic Hams.

The recalled products were produced prior to March 1, 2013, and are marked with “Est. 2592″ inside the USDA mark of inspection.
