Manda Beef Recall

A Louisiana-based meat packing company is expanding a recall because of possible bacterial contamination.

FOX News Radio's Don Mathisen has details:

The Manda Packing Company recalling 468,000 pounds of roast beef, ham, turkey, pork, headcheese, corned beef and pastrami.  The meat is possibly contaminated with listeria, a bacteria that's one of the most virulent food-borne agents that causes disease.  There are 500 deaths a year in the U.S. attributed to listeria.

The products were shipped to 13 states.  A Manda spokesman says the company is working with the USDA to enhance their food safety systems.
