Lab Finds No Risk From Bacteria At Ohio Bakery

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) - An independent lab has found that bacteria discovered at a commercial bakery in northeast Ohio poses no risk to public health.

Production at the Schwebel Baking Co. facility in Youngstown was stopped Tuesday after environmental sampling conducted by the company found an undetermined species of listeria, a naturally occurring bacteria.

The bakery reported the findings to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and immediately initiated a voluntary withdrawal of all products shipped to markets in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, New York, Michigan, West Virginia and Kentucky.

Test results found the listeria poses no health threat to workers or consumers.

Company president Paul Schwebel says that full production will resume soon.
