Manda meat products back in stores this weekend

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Deli and specialty meats from the Manda Fine Meats' company will once again be sold in stores.  The Baton Rouge based company says their products should return to shelves this weekend.

Three weeks ago almost 500,000 pounds of meat made at the Manda plant in Baker were recalled due to possible Listeria contamination.  Manda says there have been no reports of illness from the contaminated products.

The Baker plant has since ceased operation but Manda continues to produce its products at other plants that have been USDA approved. The company expects near-normal distribution within the next few weeks.
