A Zanesville Ohio company is recalling about 9,000 pounds of fully-cooked deli items because of possible contamination with a bacteria that can cause a deadly disease.  Carl Rittberger Sr., Inc. says it is voluntarily recalling spiced loaf, garlic bologna, natural casing wieners and other products.

A positive test result for Listeria monocytogenes turned up during a routine inspection by the Ohio Department of Agriculture, but Rittberger’s says that product never left the plant.  Rittberger’s says the recalled products would have been purchased between June 25 and July 6.
