The Di Stefano Cheese Company has issued a recall for about 1,300 pounds of ham that was not presented at the U.S. point of entry for inspection.

Without the benefit of a full inspection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) cannot guarantee that the product is safe for consumption.

The product in question is Parma Boneless Ham, produced in Italy. It is sold in 15 pound cases, bearing the name "Ruliano Collezione Regale" or "Ruliano 24." The former also features the case code 14260, while the latter bears a sell by date of 08-02-2016.

These products were sent only to distributors in California.

No adverse reactions in relation to consumption of these products have been reported to FSIS or the company.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

Customers with questions can contact Sasia Mellinger, Human Resources Manager, at (909) 865-8301.
