February 19, 2007: Over 50,000 Pounds of Oscar Mayer Chicken Breast Strips Recalled For Possible Listeria Contamination

About 52,650 pounds of fully cooked, ready-to-eat, chicken breast strips have been recalled by Carolina Culinary Foods, which is based in West Columbia, South Carolina. The chicken strips are being voluntary recalled because of possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced the recall on Sunday, Feb 18.

The recalled, six-ounce packages of meat have been identified as: Oscar Mayer/Louis Rich chicken breast strips with rib meat, grilled, fully cooked-ready to eat, with the establishment number “P-19676” inside the USDA mark of inspection on the front. The “use by” date on the back of the package is “19 Apr 2007.”

The Georgia Department of Agriculture discovered Listeria in a store sample of the product after microbiological testing. There have been no reports of illness resulting from consumption of contaminated products, the FSIS said. The FSIS has categorized this recall as Class I, with a “high” health risk.

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 a 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.
