WASHINGTON (AP) — Oregon-based Reser's Fine Foods is recalling pre-packaged products that may be contaminated with Listeria.

The items were made at a Topeka, Kan., plant. They vary widely and include such items as cole slaw, pimento spread and potato salad. The U.S. Department of Agriculture says the items also include 22,800 pounds of products containing chicken, ham and beef.

The company and federal officials announced Tuesday that the refrigerated ready-to-eat products may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. The products were distributed across the U.S. and Canada.

There have been no reports of illness.

The company and federal officials listed various "sell by" dates for the recalled products.

Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon and potentially fatal disease. Symptoms can include high fever and severe headache.
