A massive chicken recall was issued that affects products sold at Costco and Trader Joe's in Connecticut.
The chicken came from Ajinomoto Windsor, Inc. and is connected to Listeria concerns. More than 47 million pounds of not-ready-to-eat meat and poultry are involved.
The affected products included Tai Pei Chicken Fried Rice, Tai Pei Pepper Beef, Yakitori Chicken Fried Rice, Petite Cuisine Southwest Chicken Firecrackers, Petite Cuisine Chicken Poblano Firecrackers and a number of others.
They were produced from May 1, 2014 though May 1, 2016.
Here's the complete list from the U.S. Department of Agriculture:
The voluntary recall is connected to a larger recall that was issued earlier this month from CRF Frozen Foods.
The USDA said consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, people with weakened immune systems and pregnant women and their newborns. People outside those risk groups can be affected, but it's not as common.
