Federal officials are watching for possible reports of illnesses linked to packaged foods from a plant in Kansas that have been recalled over concerns about potential Listeria contamination.
Officials were not reporting any illnesses, however.
Oregon-based Reser's Fine Foods is recalling 109,000 cases of refrigerated, ready-to-eat items distributed in the U.S. and Canada. The items include coleslaw and potato salad, as well as products with beef, chicken and ham.
Company President Mark Reser said in a statement that it is focusing on testing and food-handling procedures.
