HOUSTON (AP) - A Texas company has recalled more than 3,300 pounds (1496.87 kilograms) of ready-to-eat meat, poultry and salad products amid concerns about possible listeria contamination.

Listeria mainly affects pregnant women, the elderly and others with weakened immune systems. It can cause headache, stiff neck, confusion and convulsions, and in pregnant women can cause miscarriages, stillbirths, premature delivery and other life-threatening conditions for newborns.
