Jenny Craig Chicken Products Recalled Due to Contamination
Wednesday, October 24, 2018
Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) is advising consumers that SK Food Group is recalling more than 174,000 points of Jenny Craig chicken wrap products due to Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes.
The frozen, fully cooked chicken wrap items were produced on various dates from Oct. 15, 2017, through Oct. 15, 2018.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 45367” or “EST. 20552” stamped on the product centerfold.
These items were shipped directly to consumers through catalog sales in California, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Texas.
The problem was discovered on Oct. 14, 2018, when SK Food Group received notification that the vegetables used in the production of their chicken wrap products were being recalled by their vegetable supplier due to Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella concerns.
Symptoms of Consumption
Consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses. The most common symptoms of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated product.
The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days. Most people recover without treatment. In some people, however, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. Older adults, infants, and people with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact their healthcare provider.
Consumption of food contaminated with L. monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women and their newborns.
Less commonly, people outside these risk groups are affected.
