Franconia, Pa.

Poultry giant Pilgrim’s Pride recalled 27 million pounds of deli meat this week, the largest meat recall in U.S. history. Federal inspectors detected a potentially fatal bacteria, listeria, in floor drains at the company’s Franconia, Pa., plant, where it produces cooked chicken and turkey sandwich meats under the Wampler Foods brand. The discovery came after an outbreak caused by a different strain of listeria sickened 120 and killed 20 in the Northeast this summer. The company shut down the plant until further notice and asked consumers to return any Wampler sandwich meats produced since May for a refund.
