Chicken Products Recalled over Listeria Fears

22 August 2014

US – A California based food processor is recalling approximately 92,657 pounds of fully cooked chicken Caesar salad kit products over concerns about possible Listeria monocytogenes (Lm) contamination.

The salad kits were shipped nationwide to one bulk warehouse chain for retail sale in its in-store cafés.

The company APPA Fine Foods produced the kits used by the bulk warehouse chain.

The kits were produced in July and August.

Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development personnel informed the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) that it had received two confirmed positive Listeria monocytogenes results from retail product purchased at one of the bulk warehouse chain locations.

The bulk warehouse chain then sampled intact components of the salad kits. Only the chicken came up positive with Listeria monocytogenes.

FSIS and the company have received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products.
