Oscar Mayer Chicken Recalled, Among Others

Yet another popular food item has been recalled due to being infected with a deadly bacteria.

Carolina Culinary Foods has recalled 52,650 pounds of fully cooked chicken breasts produced on Jan. 9 and distributed nationwide to retailers. The six-ounce packages are labeled OSCAR MAYER/LOUIS RICH CHICKEN BREAST STRIPS WITH RIB MEAT, GRILLED, FULLY COOKED -- READY TO EAT. Each package has the number "P-19676" inside the USDA inspection mark on front and a use-by-date of "19 Apr 2007" on back.

According to a statement from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, a sample of the meat tested in Georgia was contaminated by Listeria monocytogenes, which can cause listeriosis, a rare but serious infection. Currently there have been no reported cases of illness linked to the recalled chicken. Anyone with questions about the recall should contact Kraft Consumer Response at (800) 871-7117.

The chicken recall follows a string of food recalls including peanut butter due to salmonella as well as baby food and cantaloupe.
