Harold Food Co. of Bear Creek, N.C., is recalling about 1,200 pounds of chicken salad products due to concerns about Listeria monocytogene contamination.
The products contain eggs that are the subject of a Food and Drug Administration recall due to the Listeria threat.
Being recalled are all 30-pound boxes of Harold Food Co. Grand Strand Deluxe Chicken Salad, with a “Sell By” date of 2/15/2012 and bearing the establishment number “P-20479” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The products were sent to a distributor in South Carolina for further distribution in North Carolina and South Carolina. The chicken salad products may have been repackaged as sandwiches under a brand other than Harold Food Co. and no longer bear the identifying information listed above.
Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis. However, listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea.
