The Georgia Department of Agriculture is warning the public and advising the U.S. Department of Agriculture that some Zeigler Wieners are contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
State food scientists found the listeria in a sample of the wieners.
The contamination was found in a 12-ounce package of Zeigler chicken and pork wieners marked CI USE BY Nov 26 08. The package also bears the plant number P-9156S inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The wieners are manufactured by R.L. Zeigler Co. Inc., Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
Georgia is also removing the Zeigler Wieners from store shelves in the state. Let’s see how long it takes for USDA to nudge a formal recall out of Zeigler.
