Stop & Shop Recalls Irish Bacon on Tainted Pork Potential

12/15/2008
The Stop & Shop Supermarket Co., LLC, following a voluntary recall from Tommy Moloney's, Inc., has removed all eight-ounce packages of Tommy Moloney's Irish Breakfast Bacon from its stores.

Irish government officials have ordered a recall on all pork products from the Republic of Ireland (Eire) after dioxins, which may be carcinogenic, were discovered in slaughtered pigs believed to have consumed contaminated feed. The tainted pork may have been exported to as many as 25 countries.

The recall applies to all codes of Tommy Moloney's Irish Breakfast Bacon eight-ounce packages bearing UPC No. 08-52487-00109. The sell-by dates on the packages are between Dec. 15, 2008 and Jan. 31, 2009

To date, no illnesses have been reported in connection to the recalled product.

Quincy, Mass.-based Stop & Shop employs over 59,000 associates and operates stores throughout Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maine, New Hampshire, New York, and New Jersey.
