WASHINGTON (AP) – A poultry giant has recalled more than five tons of ready-to-eat chicken made in Texas because the products could be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, a type of bacteria that can cause food poisoning.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced that Pilgrim’s Pride Corp., was recalling two products.

The first is 390 pounds of Fully-Cooked Grilled Chicken Breast Fillets with Rib Meat. Made at Pilgrim’s Waco plant, it was distributed through a foodservice distribution center in Columbus, Ohio.

About 10,850 pounds of Sweet Georgia Brand Fully-Cooked Breaded White Chicken Nuggets Shaped Patties was also recalled. Produced at Pilgrim’s Mt. Pleasant plant, it was sent to foodservice distribution centers in New Jersey and Texas.

The problem was discovered during on-site internal testing at each plant.
