Daniele International, a Burrillville-based company, shipped the recalled meats in plastic trays to grocers and retailers nationwide.
The potential contamination was discovered during a routine inspection of the facility, during which bacteria “was found on surfaces in which the product came into contact.”

Listeria symptoms usually start one to four weeks after eating contaminated food, but can start as soon as the same day. Those symptoms include fever, muscle aches, nausea and diarrhea.
While it can be treated with antibiotics, listeria is especially dangerous to pregnant women, the elderly and those with compromised immune systems.
