Chicken Nuggets and Other Recalled Products Were Sold by Dollar General, Starbucks, Race Trac, and Other Stores

July 27, 2011 -- Pilgrim's pride has recalled 18,312 pounds of chicken nuggets and chicken fillets sold at Dollar General stores in nine states.

Contamination with potentially deadly listeria bacteria was detected in the fully cooked products.

In a separate recall, also due to listeria contamination, Flying Foods has recalled some 7,000 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken, turkey, beef, and pork products sold in Alabama, Florida, and Georgia. Some of the products were sold in Starbucks stores, which on Monday removed all Flying Foods products from their shelves.

To date, no illnesses have been reported from consumers of the recalled products. Listeria bacteria can cause serious and often fatal illness, especially in pregnant women, people with immune suppression, and older adults.
