|Reasons for recall
|The problem was discovered when the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets notified FSIS that it had observed the meat salami product stored at non-refrigerated temperatures. The product is not shelf stable but was not labeled with a handling statement indicating that it should be kept refrigerated. FSIS' investigation identified additional varieties of halal meat and poultry sausage products with the brand name "Sheikh" produced by Alef Sausage Inc. in commerce that did not bear a handling statement.
