Costco Recalls 10,368 Pounds Of Listeria-Contaminated Chicken

Costco is issuing a voluntary recall for 10,368 pounds of Discover Cuisine frozen chicken entrees under suspicion that the chicken may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, which can cause headaches, neck stiffness, and, uh, spontaneous abortions.

From Costco’s recall:

Four-pack of 12-ounce packages of “Discover Cuisine ™ Red Curry Chicken & Jasmine Rice.” Each package bears the Canadian establishment number “Est. 302” inside the Canadian Food Inspection Agency mark of inspection as well as a “Best By” date of “12 18 08.” The item number “2880” also appears by the UPC code on the package.

No illnesses have been reported yet, and according to a leading listeria litigation lawfirm (now I know what to do with my law degree!), those with weakened immune systems are most susceptible to infection. Costco has a phone number for people seeking more information: (800) 774-2678.
