More Than 85,000 Pounds of Meat Recalled in 8 States

Updated: Apr. 25, 2024

This charcuterie staple may call for a second look, according to the company that distributed it in the U.S.

A sliced deli meat product distributed to retailers in eight states is being recalled. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced the recall on April 24, 2023, citing insufficient inspection as the reason that 85,984 pounds of ready-to-eat prosciutto was being pulled from shelves.

The 5.29-ounce plastic packages of Stockmeyer Prosciutto were distributed to retailers in California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, and Washington by ConSup North America Inc., which operates out of Lincoln Park, NJ. While the specific sellers were not mentioned, Trader Joe’s has been known to carry the lightly smoked sliced prosciutto.

The recalled prosciutto is identifiable by the blue Stockmeyer logo at the top right with Prosciutto written across the red package and Product of Germany below. The recall announcement states that all affected packages were produced from Sept. 25, 2023, through March 6, 2024 and bear various lot codes and best-before dates, listed below.

The FSIS was notified of the inspection oversight by Germany’s Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety. The FSIS explains that products sold in certain countries can be inspected there if the country’s inspection procedures are equivalent to those used by the FSIS.
