According to the Cameco press release:

"Cameco, Inc., a Verona, N.J., establishment is recalling approximately 79,312 pounds of various fully cooked, ready-to-eat meat and poultry products because the products may contain under-processed ham components after contacting surfaces of equipment."

While can only guess at what is meant by “the products may contain under-processed ham components after contacting surfaces of equipment,” the meaning of a Class I recall implies that “there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.” 

Cameco manufactures meat products for private labels (supermarket branding). The Cameco recall applies to the following brands: 

Appleton Brand, Bridgford Brand, CV Clear Value Brand, Dean's Brand, El Primero Brand, FAS √ CHEK Brand, Food Club Brand, IGA Brand, Lay's Classic Meats Brand, Meijer Brand, Mrs. Stratton's Brand, Pro’s Ranch Brand, RED OSGOOD Brand, Quality Meats Brand, Thank You by Cameco Brand, Valu Time Meats Brand
