July 8, 2012 at 10:26 AM

BRIDGETON, N.J., July 8 (UPI) -- A New Jersey food company issued a recall for nearly 325,000 pounds of frozen meatballs and other products.

Buona Vita Inc. in Bridgeton issued the alert after federal and state inspectors in Ohio detected the listeria contamination, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said in a written statement this weekend.

No illnesses had been reported, though the federal Food Safety and Inspection Service will be making sure distributors pull the affected items from circulation.

The products included various types of precooked meatballs, meat patties and meatloaf sold under the Cupino, Mama Isabella and Sapore Italiano brands.

The products were largely sold nationwide in early May and were in 10- to 30-pound boxes. The packages bear the establishment number "P-954" or "Est. 954" inside the USDA mark of inspection.
