An Alabama company is recalling more than 28,000 pounds of hot dog products sent to markets in five Southern states.
The Selma-based R.L. Zeigler Co. said Monday the food may be contaminated with a bacterium that can cause the potentially deadly disease listeriosis, although safety officials say no one has reported any illnesses linked to the meat.
The recall includes several different sizes and types of Zeigler hot dogs sold in everything from 12-ounce packages to 10-pound bulk boxes.
The products were produced on Sept. 22 and were sent to food service institutions and stores in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, and Tennessee.
