“House of Raeford Farms,” a North Carolina company, has recalled approximately 4,140 pounds of cooked chicken breasts that may be contaminated by Listeria monocytogenes. The products subject to recall include: 18 to 22-lb boxes containing two 9 to 11-lb. “BONELESS OVEN ROASTED CHICKEN BREAST”

The recalled products bear the establishment number “P-239A” inside the USDA mark of inspection along with a product code of “94268” and a package date of “1270” (Sept. 27, 2011). The products were shipped to delicatessens and food service institutions for futher processing in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

The USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that recalled product is no longer available to consumers.

The problem was discovered after a customer’s laboratory sample tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes. FSIS has received no reports of illness due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a health care provider.
