(WPRI) — The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is recalling ready-to-eat pork products due to a listeria outbreak.

The CDC says four people have been hospitalized after eating Long Phung pork patty rolls.

Listeria specimens were collected from those infected between the dates of July 1, 2017, to October 24, 2018.

Listeria is especially dangerous for anyone over the age of 65, pregnant, or people who have a weakened immune system, the CDC says.

Recalled products are labeled with the establishment number “EST 13561” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The recalled pork patty rolls were produced between May 21, 2018, through November 16, 2018, and were shipped to various stores nationwide.
