Those who are regulars at Starbucks coffee shops in Alabama and Georgia will need to be aware of chicken products that were recalled this week. Flying Food Group is producer of Starbucks Chipotle Chicken Wrap Bistro Box and the Starbucks Chicken and Hummus Bistro Box. Each was recalled because of Listeria monocytogene contamination.
Approximately 204 pounds of prepared chicken wraps and plates are affected in the recall. The recalled products have “Enjoy by 071511” on the bottom left corner of the package. Also printed is an establishment number of P-34373 within the USDA mark of inspection.
This contamination was discovered during microbiological testing conducted by the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, or FSIS. There haven’t been any illnesses reported because of these products, it was only discovered during a routine check.
Listeria monocytogene can result in listeriosis, which is potentially fatal, although quite uncommon. Other listeriosis symptoms can include fever, headache, neck stiffness, and nausea.
No instructions are yet available for returning the recalled products if you have purchased one, but you can reach out to Flying Food Group’s company representative Ellen Pritsker at (312) 243-2122 with any concerns about the Starbucks recall.
