The U.S. Department of Agriculture was alerted to the problem after a sample of cooked roast beef at a store in Tennessee tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes.  Further samples tested positive as well.

No reports of illnesses associated with the recalled products have been reported.

Consumption of contaminated food can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease.  Healthy people rare contract listeriosis, however it can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea.  Listeriosis can cause fatal infections in those with weakened immune systems.
