Chicken wraps sold at Starbucks are being recalled because they could be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, according to news reports.
Flying Food Group recalled 204 pounds of the ready-to-eat chicken wraps, which were sold at the coffee chain, the Food Safety and Inspection Service said.
The following products are affected by the recall:
- 6.3-ounce packages of “STARBUCKS CHICKEN & HUMMUS Bistro Box”
- 8.4-ounce packages of “STARBUCKS CHIPOTLE CHICKEN WRAPS Bistro Box.
The products were produced July 13. No reports of illness were received by FSIS, however they are urging the customers avoid eating this product.
“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,” according to the FSIS
As a Bellevue personal injury attorney, I urge consumers to check this recall and make sure they aren’t eating this potentially contaminated food. Listeria is a potentially fatal foodborne disease that is linked to miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. It can also cause high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Staphylococcus can cause serious gastrointestinal illnesses, including nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, and diarrhea. Both pathogens are more serious in the elderly and very young.
If you have been seriously injured in a food poisoning case, contact a personal injury lawyer in Bellevue.
