Hot Dog Recall

About 48,000 pounds of hot dogs produced by the Lay Packing Co. in Knoxville have been voluntarily recalled because of potential contamination from a bacteria that causes listeriosis. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the recall yesterday. It involves five wiener brands produced on July 24th and distributed to retailers in Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina and South Carolina. Listeriosis is an uncommon but potentially fatal disease with symptoms including high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea, the USDA said. The Lay products subject to recall are: Jubilee Franks in 12-ounce packages coded ``Sell by Oct 06.'' Frosty Morn wieners in 12-ounce packages coded ``Sell by Oct 06.'' Lay's Quik Starts wieners in 12-ounce packages coded ``Sell by Sep 26.'' Lay's Thrift Brand wieners in 24-ounce packages coded ``Sell by Sep 26.'' Lay Packing Co. Circle L wieners in 24-ounce packages coded ``Sell by Sep 26.'' The expiration dates also serve as the product lot number. All affected products bear the Lay Packing establishment number P-967. ------------------------------------------------------- For more information call Lay Packing at 865-546-2511 or the USDA at 1-800-525-4555. --- On the Net: U.S. Department of Agriculture: http://www.fsis.usda.gov
