Washington, D.C.- July 27, 2012
LSG Sky Chefs, an Orlando, Fla. establishment, is recalling approximately 735 pounds of ready-to-eat chipotle chicken wrap products. The products contain diced onions that are the subject of a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recall due to concerns about possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
The following products are subject to recall:
• 6.9-ounce packages of “RaceTrac Chipotle Chicken Wrap.”
Each package has a “Sell Thru” date of July 27 to July 31, 2012 and bears the establishment number “P-19682” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were produced at the company’s Orlando, FL facility and are the only LSG Sky Chefs product that is affected by this recall. The products were produced from July 22 to July 26, 2012, and shipped for distribution to retail establishments in Florida.
FSIS was alerted to the problem by LSG Sky Chefs. The company informed the agency that diced onions subject to an FDA recall were contained in the pico de gallo used in the chicken wraps produced on the dates listed above. FSIS, FDA and the company have received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify that 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/FSIS_Recalls/Open_Federal_Cases/index.asp.
Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis. However, listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea. Listeriosis can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weakened immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact a health care provider.
Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Sherrie Scott, a company compliance officer, at (770) 331-7600, ext. 1402. Media with questions about the recall should contact David Margulies, the company’s spokesperson, at (214) 914-1275.
