ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Authorities say a Minnesota frozen food and packaging company is recovering more than 212,000 pounds of ready-to-eat pork and chicken products from vegetables that may be contaminated with salmonella and listeria.
The Agriculture Department said in a release issued on Friday that Buddy's Kitchen Inc. of Burnsville produced the products between October 19, 2017 and October 9, 2018. The items were shipped to Arizona, California, Georgia, Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri and New Jersey. They have the number "P-4226" within the USDA mark.
The problem was discovered by Buddy's Vegetable Supplier. The USDA says no side effects have been reported on the products. Consumers are encouraged not to eat the products.
Salmonella can cause abdominal cramping and fever. Listeria can cause fever, muscle aches, headaches, a stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and cramps. (1
