“The FSIS announced the recall of 6,804 pounds of ready-to-eat (RTE) ham products by Olymel S.E.C./L.P., a Quebec, Canada establishment because the products may be contaminated with Salmonella Enteritidis.
FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ refrigerators or freezers. Consumer... s who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them.

The products subject to recall bear Canadian establishment number 180 inside the Canadian inspection mark located below the ingredient list. These items were shipped to distributors in California for further distribution for institutional use.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

“So I usually get Vital Farms eggs which I trust .. but I saw the flashy "organic" The Farmer's Hen" for half the cost .. thought I might as well give it a try. I noticed the egg shells were a bit cracked but didn't think much of it and the texture wasn't what I'm used to see.. an hour later I starte... d feeling nauseated.. and I threw up every half an hour..for about 2-3 hours. I also saw a bit of blood in the vomit. Thank god I'm feeling better now but I felt really horrible. I looked up the brand and they keep the chickens in a warehouse and had bad reviews. I wanted to support local farms but definitely not this kind. I think the eggs had salmonella growing in them.. realllly bad ... I love eggs 😭 I can take photos of the eggs if requested and required, half of then are still in the fridge. I got them yesterday. ”
