All batches and all dates of pre-cooked and ready-to-eat meat products manufactured by Swiss Deli Ltd are being recalled over bacteria concerns.

New Zealand Food Safety said a lack of processing controls might have resulted in the presence of Listeria monocytogenes.

The bacterium can cause serious illness, called listeriosis, with symptoms including diarrhoea, fever, headaches, vomiting and muscle pain.

Two Pams Finest brand products are also included in the recall, Biersticks 160g and Mini Salami Twin Pack 150g.


New Zealand Food Safety warned people not to consume the affected products unless it is cooked thoroughly, "piping hot all the way through", it said.

While there have been no reports of illness, if the product had been consumed and people have concerns, they are told to seek medical advice.

People should return the products to their retailer for a full refund, New Zealand Food Safety said.

The products affected were sold in supermarkets throughout the North Island and at Swiss Deli on Greenmount Drive, East Tamaki, Auckland.

However, the recall did not affect any other Swiss Deli brand and Pams Finest brand products.
