Ukrop's Homestyle Foods Recalls 2,881 Pounds of Food

Trash those ham and cheese pinwheels, folks.

Time to practice your aim while chucking things from the fridge into the trash can. Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods is recalling turkey, pork, and beef that may contain glass, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.

These include Ukrop’s Homestyle’s roasted turkey and colby jack pinwheels, black forest ham and provolone pinwheels, Angus roast beef and cheddar pinwheels, honey ham and honey turkey pinwheel trays, honey turkey and havarti pinwheel trays, and honey ham and swiss pinwheel trays made between April 1 and 2, with sell-by dates of April 4 and 5.

And it’s a lot of food that the company has to recall – about 2,881 pounds worth. Ukrop’s received a notice from Roland Foods on April 4 that its fire-roasted red pepper strips might be contaminated with glass fragments. I calculate that there’s been about a three-day delay in getting the news out to consumers.

Ukrop’s Homestyle hasn’t released a statement, and I hadn’t heard back from its spokesman before publication.

“There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products,” the announcement from the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service says. “FSIS has received no additional reports of injury or illness from consumption of these products.”

So, throw those pinwheels in any of their various forms out or make a beeline to the store to return them. And check back for any updates -- I’ll keep you posted.
