March 1, 2007: Oscar Mayer Louis/Rich Chicken Strip Recall Expanded

Kraft Foods Inc. has expanded its February 18, 2007, recall of Oscar Mayer/Louis Rich Chicken Breast Strips to include all of the products made at their Carolina Culinary Foods facility because of the possibility of Listeria contamination.

While there have been reported illnesses linked with the initial recall, Kraft decided to expand the recall after “subsequent evaluation,” according to a news release issued by the company on February 23, 2007. The company also noted that they had informed the USDA about this action.

The recall now applies to all “code dates, sizes, and flavor varieties” of Oscar Mayer/Louis Rich Chicken Breast Strips and Cuts with a “best if used by” date of 28 MAY 2007 or earlier.

According to the news release, the following products are subject to the recall:
• Oscar Mayer Louis Rich Chicken Breast Strips with Rib Meat Southwestern Seasoned, Net Wt 6oz, UPC 71871 55720

Eating food contaminated with Listeria can cause a serious illness known as listeriosis. Symptoms of the illness include fever, muscle aches, and, occasionally, nausea or diarrhea. If infection spreads to the nervous system, symptoms such as headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, or convulsions can occur. The disease affects primarily pregnant women, newborns, the elderly, and adults with weakened immune systems. Infections during pregnancy can lead to miscarriage, premature delivery, stillbirth, or septicemia (blood infection) and meningitis in the newborn.

Signs of illness typically appear from 3- 4 weeks following the consumption of contaminated food. However, symptoms can develop from one week to 90 days after exposure to Listeria.
