These products may have been sliced at retail delis, and if so will not bear this packaging information. The products were shipped for further distribution, for sale at retail, and to retail deli stores in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.

FSIS was alerted to the problem by the Tennessee Department of Agriculture, who took an intact sample of cooked roast beef at a retail establishment on April 5, 2013, which later confirmed positive for Listeria monocytogenes. The recall is now being expanded because of additional samples from additional production dates which returned positive for Listeria monocytogenes. FSIS and the company have received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products.
