An Ohio meat packaging company has issued a voluntary recall of 2,190 pounds of meat possibly produced under unsanitary conditions, according to a news release.

The meat products are fresh, not frozen beef, pork, chicken and other sliced deli products.

The following items have been recalled:

Various sliced deli meats

According to the news release, the beef, pork, chicken and deli products were produced on October 4, 5, and 6.  They are marked with the number "Est. 151" inside the Ohio mark of inspections.  

The following lot codes were affected: 17J04, 17J05, 17J06 and OCT0517.

Hog carcasses were sold to Ohio City Provisions in Cleveland and chorizo sausages were sold to Fresh Fork Market in Cleveland, the release said.

Customers who have purchased the items are asked not consume them. Newswanger meats said the products should be discarded or taken to the place of purchase for a refund.
