Private label brand-names include:
- River Edge Farms

- CJ’s Vending
- Binford Street Deli
- Middle Georgia Vendors
- Roanoke Foods

Recalled products were distributed in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and Georgia. The recall was initiated after the North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services had a sample test positive for Listeria.
