Deli Meat Recall August 2010?

About 380,000 pounds of possibly tainted deli meat products that were sold at Walmarts nationwide has been recalled by Zemco Industries.
The meats may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, which was discovered in a retail sample collected by inspectors in Georgia. The USDA has received no reports of illnesses associated with the meats yet but we should all be careful.

Is Wal-Mart the only retailer listed as receiving the deli meat that is part of the recall? I ask because I buy a lot of meat from other retailers.

So far, Wal-Mart is the only retailer listed as receiving the products. They may be contaminated with Salmonella and Listeria.

The products included in the august 2010 deli meat recall were distributed to a number of delis and processed into sandwiches.
Listeria can cause a high fever, severe headache, a stiff neck and nausea among pregnant woman, newborns, and adults with weakened immune systems.

The packages bear the vendor number "398412808" and the USDA mark of inspection. The meats were produced from June 18 to July 2, with "Use By" dates ranging from Aug. 20 to Sept. 10.
