115k Pounds of Mislabeled Deli Meat Recalled

Malted barley is an allergen that can cause a number of symptoms, including nausea, diarrhea, contact urticarial, and so on. Hahn Brothers, Inc., a distributer, failed to list malted barley as an ingredient on its ham before shipping out more than 115,773 pounds of the product to a New Jersey Distributed. 

The following was published on the United States Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service website:

The ready-to-eat ham products were produced from Dec. 17, 2015 to July 27, 2017. The products have a 70-day sell-by date. The following product is subject to recall.
1.75-lb. of vacuum-packed mini ham packages containing “Lou’s Garrett Valley Natural, All Natural black forest seasoned uncured ham nugget, FULLY COOKED WOOD SMOKED” with a case code 74045.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 2000” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to a distributor in New Jersey and further distributed to retail locations.

Dear friends and clients,

In furtherance of our firms culture of commitment to always act with compassion, concern and commitment to our clients, community and colleagues, we have been taking precautions to ensure that we are still fulfilling our ethical and moral obligations while prioritizing health, wellness and safety of all we can. 

As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced changes to many lives and businesses in our communities, and around the world. We, much like our neighbors and friends, have been taking precautions to ensure that we are still fulfilling our ethical and moral obligation to our clients, while also prioritizing the health, wellness and safety of our employees.

Until further notice, our offices will be closed to the public to encourage social distancing and to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our team is still hard at work, many from home, and you may still call, email, live chat or video conference us if you or a loved one is seeking legal assistance. As the first law firm to offer our clients secure online access to their case file more than a decade ago, we have always been believers in using technology to make life easier and information more accessible. In these present times it has been a smooth transition for us to continue to offer our clients the same seamless and thorough service that you deserve and are accustomed to.

This pandemic is unlike anything any of us have faced in our lifetimes, and while we can continue to emotionally support one another through it all, staying home and keeping your distance is vital to the health and wellness of our communities. It does not feel good to break routines, cancel events and retreat from our normal, day-to-day socializing, but let us remember that, in times of strife, prior generations were asked to go to war and we are simply being asked to stay home. Your isolation equals more lives saved, and more time for medical providers to prepare for the treatment of patients battling COVID-19.

When the dust settles, we will join together with a greater appreciation for our lives, local businesses, loved ones and health. Until then, we will continue to offer guidance from a safe distance.

Very truly yours,

Andrew G. Finkelstein and the staff of Jacoby & Meyers, LLP
