252,000 Pounds of Green Chile Burrito Products Recalled Due to Possible Listeria
The Kane County Health Department is advising that the Green Chile Food Company, of Las Cruces, NM, is recalling approximately 252,854 pounds of ready-to-eat meat and poultry frozen burrito products because they may be adulterated with Listeria monocytogenes.
There have been no confirmed reports of illness due to consumption of these products. However, these items were shipped to institutions, retail stores and distribution centers in California, Illinois, Oregon, and South Dakota.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “M-21740 or P-21740” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
Consumption of food contaminated with L. monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women and their newborns. Less commonly, persons outside these risk groups are affected.
Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase. Consumers with questions regarding the recall can contact Green Chile Concepts, Premiere Response Contact Center, at (800) 695-0843. Members of the media with questions regarding the recall can contact Greg Flack, CEO, at (952) 666-2995.
