Over 2,000 pounds of frozen chicken products recalled

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — Approximately 2,010 pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat chicken products are being recalled after they were potentially contaminated with listeria monocytogenes, federal officials say.

Canada-based Al-Safa US LLC issued the recall earlier this month for the imported chicken after the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) discovered the contamination during routine product testing.

The FSIS provided the below packaging of the recalled products:

There have been no confirmed reports of illness or reactions related to the consumption of these products at this time.

Infection with Listeria monocytogenes can cause symptoms of nausea, vomiting, aches, fever and diarrhea. The bacteria has the potential to spread to the nervous system, including the brain, which can result in meningitis or other potentially fatal illnesses. The infection also poses a high risk for pregnancies, as it can result in miscarriage.

The USDA says that children, older adults and immunocompromised individuals are more vulnerable to infection.

If you have any of the recalled chicken products, the FSIS says you should not consume them. Instead, throw them away or return them to the store. You can also contact Marwan Mahaboob Basha, Al-Safa US LLC, at 800-268-8174.
