Mighty Meat chicken and pork hot dogs are being recalled for potential Listeria risk. At the time of the recall, no illnesses had been reported.

Among pregnant women, Listeria can cause miscarriage and stillbirth.

Mighty Meat Hot Dog Recall

The recalled products were sold in 12-oz vacuum-packed plastic packages labeled “Argentina MIGHTY MEATY CHICKEN AND PORK HOTDOG JUMBO” with “SELL BY” date 051922. The products, produced on May 19, 2021, bear the establishment number “EST. P-17524” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The problem was discovered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA FSIS). While the agency was reviewing the company’s records, it discovered that the company had received confirmation from their third-party lab that a food-contact surface at the plant had tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes. On September 28, 2021, Espi’s Sausage and Tocino Co. of  Seattle issued a recall for about 2,048 pounds of frozen ready-to-eat chicken and pork hot dogs. USDA FSIS is concerned that some consumers may have these products in their freezers.

Symptoms of a Listeria infection include fever,  headache, stiff neck, muscle aches, confusion, and loss of balance. These symptoms are sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms.
