From Monroe to Opelousas and New Orleans, retailers large and small have had to remove the pork-based, jellied cold cut product under an official recall from the product's Houston maker, Stallings Head Cheese Co. Inc. The USDA has published a Head Cheese Salmonella recall list of all Louisiana and Texas retail outlets known to carry the product, which has been associated with an outbreak of Salmonella Uganda.
