Idaho company recalling beef, pork and chicken

Posted: Updated:
BOISE, Idaho -

A southwestern Idaho company is recalling 33,500 pounds of fully cooked meat and poultry products because of possible bacterial contamination.

The United States Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Saturday that Boise-based B and D Foods is recalling a variety of meat products that could be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections.

Five different products containing beef, pork or chicken are being recalled. California, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Montana, Arizona and Ohio have received some of the products.

The products subject to recall include:

  • 10-lb. boxes, containing 2, 5-lb bags of "ROYAL "THE TEMPURA KING" ROYAL TEMPURA CHICKEN, Fully Cooked Tempura Chicken Breast," bearing an identifying code of "A-4615." This product was distributed to food service and/or institutional customers in California, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon, Utah and Washington.

  • 10-lb. boxes, containing 2, 5-lb bags of "BLINGS! CHICKEN BREAST WITH PARMESAN FLAVORING," bearing an identifying code of "A-4844." This product was distributed to food service and/or institutional customers in Idaho and Montana.

  • 10-lb. boxes, containing 2, 5-lb bags of "STEAKHOUSE TEMPURA SEASONED BEEF & BINDER STRIPS," bearing an identifying code of "A-1070-10." This product was distributed to food service and/or institutional customers in Idaho and Montana.

  • 30-lb. boxes of "KETTLE COOKED CHICKEN BREAST PIECES," bearing an identifying code of "A-3900." This product was distributed to an industrial customer in Ohio.

  • 30-lb. boxes of "FULLY COOKED PORK STRIPS," bearing an identifying code of "A-3025-30." This product was distributed to an industrial customer in Arizona and California.

The products subject to recall bear the establishment number "EST. 6266" or "Est. P-6266" inside the USDA mark of inspection, as well as an identifying case code of "110622." The products were produced on Dec. 6, 2012, and distributed to food service and institutional customers, as well as an industrial customer in the distribution areas noted above.

The agency says the problem was discovered by the company through microbiological testing. The agency says no illnesses have been reported.

USDA's recommendations for people at risk for Listeriosis:

  • Wash hands with warm, soapy water before and after handling raw meat and poultry for at least 20 seconds. Wash cutting boards, dishes and utensils with hot, soapy water. Immediately clean spills.

  • Keep raw meat, fish and poultry away from other food that will not be cooked.  Use separate cutting boards for raw meat, poultry and egg products and cooked foods.

  • Do not eat hot dogs, luncheon meats, bologna or other deli meats unless reheated until steaming hot.

  • Do not eat refrigerated pate, meat spreads from a meat counter or smoked seafood found in the refrigerated section of the store. Foods that don't need refrigeration, like canned tuna and canned salmon, are safe to eat. Refrigerate after opening.

  • Do not drink raw (unpasteurized) milk and do not eat foods that have unpasteurized milk in them.

  • Do not eat salads made in the store such as ham salad, chicken salad, egg salad, tuna salad or seafood salad.

  • Do not eat soft cheeses such as Feta, quesco blanco, quesco fresco, Brie, Camembert cheeses, blue-veined cheeses and Panela unless it is labeled as made with pasteurized milk. 

  • Use precooked or ready-to-eat food as soon as you can. Listeria can grow in the refrigerator. The refrigerator should be 40º F or lower and the freezer 0º F or lower. Use an appliance thermometer to check the temperature of your refrigerator.
