WASHINGTON, May 1, 2007 - Diestel Turkey Ranch, a Chinese Camp, Calif., firm, is voluntarily recalling approximately 6,907 pounds of ready-to-eat turkey products that may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.

The following products are subject to recall: [View Labels, PDF Only]
6-7 -pound approximate weight plastic-wrapped packages of "HERBED OVEN ROASTED TURKEY BREAST." The label bears a "Sell-by" date of "5-28-07."
6-7 -pound approximate weight plastic-wrapped packages of "CHIPOTLE PEPPERED TURKEY BREAST." The label bears a "Sell-by" date of "5-28-07."
6-7 -pound approximate weight plastic-wrapped packages of "Naturally Smoked Boneless TURKEY BREAST." The label also a "Sell-by" date of "5-28-07."
6-7 -pound approximate weight plastic-wrapped packages of "PEPPERED OVEN ROASTED TURKEY BREAST." The label bears a "Sell-by" date of "5-28-07."
6-7 -pound approximate weight plastic-wrapped packages of "Naturally Smoked, UNCURED, TURKEY BREAST WITH PASTRAMI SEASONINGS." The label bears a "Sell-by" date of "5-28-07."
1-pound approximate weight plastic-wrapped packages of "Uncured Turkey Breast with Pastrami Seasoning." The label bears a "Sell-by" date of "5-23-07."
Each label bears the establishment number "P-9332A" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The turkey products were produced on April 20, 2007 and were distributed to retail establishments in Arizona, California, Colorado, Oregon, Texas and Washington.

The problem was discovered through routine FSIS microbiological testing. FSIS has received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of this product.

Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis. However, listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea. Listeriosis can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weakened immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy.

Consumers with questions about the recall should call company General Manager Mick Williams at (209) 532-4950. Media with questions about the recall should call company Owner Timothy Diestel at (209) 532-4950.

Consumers with food safety questions can "Ask Karen," the FSIS virtual representative available 24 hours a day at AskKaren.gov. The toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) is available in English and Spanish and can be reached from l0 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday. Recorded food safety messages are available 24 hours a day.

Wow. With all the pet and food recalls makes me wonder. The only thing I don't get is the first sentence Chinese camp in California. Anybody know what that means? Live in Ny and I am confused. I love learning new things that are strange to me!

That's scary. I was in the supermarket with my father on Saturday, and he bought a cooked turkey breast. I don't think it was the same as what was mentioned, and we are in NY, so hopefully he will be ok. He already ate it and he's fine.
