Houston-based Ron’s Home Style Foods is recalling approximately 6,912 pounds of ready-to-eat (RTE) chicken salad products that may be adulterated with Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) recently announced.
The RTE chicken salad items were produced and packaged on October 22 in sizes ranging from 12 ounces to five pounds. They were shipped to institutional and retail locations in Texas. The problem was discovered on November 13 during a routine record review by FSIS inspection program personnel.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products, but FSIS is concerned that some product may still be in consumers’ refrigerators.
