USDA recalls over 2,000 pounds of frozen chicken products over listeria concerns

The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has announced a recall of over 2,000 pounds of frozen ready-to-eat chicken products due to potential listeria contamination, as reported by Fox News. The recall was initiated by Al Safa US LLC, a Canada-based importer, after concerns arose that the chicken kebabs and patties may contain the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes, which is responsible for causing listeriosis.
The affected chicken products were manufactured in Canada on June 5 and subsequently imported to the United States later in the month.
The US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) said in their Friday announcement that Al-Safa US LLC, located in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, recalled 2,010 pounds of their product.
The potential contamination was identified during a routine product testing conducted by FSIS, with results suggesting the presence of Listeria monocytogenes. The frozen products subject to the recall bear the establishment number “866” inside the Canadian mark of inspection and were produced on June 5, 2024, in Canada. They were then imported to the US on June 13 and June 21, before being shipped to retailers nationwide.
