Two Strikes – Listeria in Veron Hog Head Cheese

In August, 2010, a half million pounds of sausages and hog head cheese were pulled off Louisiana grocery shelves in a recall triggered by what the state Department of Agriculture and Forestry said were Listeria monocytogenes isolates detected in a product sample from Veron Foods. It was the SECOND recall of contaminated product from the company in 4 years.
