WASHINGTON, Aug. 30, 2022 – Connoisseur’s Kitchen, a Surrey, British Columbia establishment, is recalling approximately 880 pounds of frozen ready-to-eat (RTE) chicken entree products that may be adulterated with Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
The frozen RTE chicken entree items were produced on Aug. 3, 2022 and imported to the U.S. on Aug. 8, 2022. The following products are subject to recall [view labels]:
- 2-lb. box packages containing “SPICE MANTRA CHICKEN KORMA” with lot code 220803-406US.
- 2-lb. box packages containing “SPICE MANTRA BUTTER CHICKEN” with lot code 220803-400US.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “780” inside the Canadian mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in Alaska and Washington.
The problem was discovered when the Canadian Food Inspection Agency notified FSIS that the products are associated with a sample that tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes.
There have been no confirmed reports of illness or adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a 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, persons outside these risk groups are affected.
