Chicken Cutlets Recalled Over Listeria Concerns

Posted:
FAIRFIELD, N.J. - A New Jersey company is recalling about 8,300 pounds of chicken cutlets after possible listeria contamination.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the recall from Fairfield-based Tnuva USA Wednesday. 

The product recalled is "Mom's Chicken Extra Thin Cutlets" produced on August 18, 2013.  The bags bear the Israeli establishment number "209" within the Israeli mark of inspection.  The product has an expiration date of February 18, 2015, and bears the UPC number 843426005866. 

The problem was discovered when federal officials conducted a routine sampling of the product.  Officials say the product was held and didn't enter the marketplace. But further investigation determined other products were produced on the same line without clean up between products.

There have been no reports of illnesses associated with any of these products.

Consumption of contaminated food can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women and their newborns. Less commonly, persons outside these risk groups are affected.

Consumers with questions regarding the recall can contact Customer Service at 1-844-GOTNUVA (1-844-468-6882).
