Starbucks Recalls Bistro Box Chicken Meals in GA & AL

By Descygna Webb for DietsInReview.com

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.

Is this to fool us into thinking the USDA runs a tight ship? Hahahaha They had you feeding your children dog food mixed with bleach (pink slime) for 12 years. A few days ago the real
truth came out about Mad Cow Disease in American beef (it's IN the entire system) and they
are "exposing" something that never killed ANYBODY? What a joke. The USDA has POISONED millions and KILLED millions and you still have CONFIDENCE IN THEM?

This is why I get upset over condemnation of the practice of drinking raw milk. There are so many contaminations in other foods that are legal! We would be better off ethically and physically if we stopped the abuse of and destruction of animals. There are so many things wrong with our food and it all begins on a basic level of morality.
