More than 22,000 pounds of chicken, ham and beef products are being recalled because of possible Listeria contamination, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said.
The products were sent to retailers and distributors in Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming, the USDA said in a statement Tuesday.
The potential contamination was discovered by testing at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, officials said. "A traceback investigation and follow-up testing by (the Food and Drug Administration) at the facility determined there was potential cross contamination of products with Listeria monocytogenes from product contact surfaces."

Who is looking out for your food safety?
Article forgot to mention that ready made foods that don't contain ANY meat are also being recalled. Living as a vegetarian or vegan wouldn't necessarily save you from this round of mass produced/distributed food borne illness
If people were to adopt a strictly vegetarian diet, none of this would be an issue...
I only like Smoked Vegan.....or else they are stringy and they are tuff to chew. Low and slow on the smoker is the way to go.
I add a lot of Fruit wood so the tree huggers have something to hold onto.
He He He.......
what about all of those salads, spinach, tomato, cantaloupe recalls in the past few years? E Coli much?
Here we go again......
