The ready-to-eat turkey, pork, and beef items were packed on April 1 and 2, 2016, and sell-by dates of April 4 and 5, 2016. The following products are subject to recall:
185.02-lb. of individually packaged 9.25 OZ “ROASTED TURKEY & COLBY JACK PINWHEELS.”

The products subject to recall bear establishment numbers “EST. 19979” and “P-19979” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were distributed to retail locations in North Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia.
The problem was discovered on April 4, 2016, when Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods received notice from their distributor of the recall involving Roland® Fire Roasted Red Pepper Strips. (See FDA press release here.) The red pepper strips were recalled by Roland Foods, LLC on April 1, 2016, due to the possible presence of glass fragments in the product.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
