- 7.4-oz. plastic sealed carton containing “corner store market CHICKEN CAESAR WRAP Chicken Strips & Cheese with Caesar Dressing” with sell by dates of 04/08/18 through 4/20/19.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 31680” or “P-31680” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in Texas.
The problem was discovered when the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) notified FSIS that routine testing of a shared FSIS and FDA processing area within the establishment, was confirmed positive for the presence of L. monocytogenes. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
In February 2018, the FDA issued a warning letter to Great American Marketing after finding Listeria monocytogenes in products at its facility during inspections in July and August 2017.
