Mom’s Chicken Extra Thin Cutlets
TNUVA USA, a New Jersey company, has recalled 8,316 pounds of Mom’s Chicken Extra Thin Cutlets due to possible Liserian monocytogenes contamination.
The breaded chicken was manufactured on August 18, 2013, and shipped to the company’s distributor in New Jersey. The chicken cutlets were sold in 1.8 lb. bags. The expiration date is listed as February 18, 2015, and this UPC number appears on the packaging: 843426005866.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service conducted a routine sampling of TNUVA USA product, which tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes. Further investigation showed that other products were produced on the same line without cleaning up in between. The Food Safety and Inspection Service is concerned that some of these food products may be frozen and in consumers’ freezers.
The USDA has yet to receive any reports of illness associated with these recalled products. Listeriosis can cause fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, and convulsions. It is especially dangerous for pregnant women, older adults, and those with weakened immune systems.
