BBQ Chicken Salad Recalled for Potential Listeria Contamination

A California company is recalling approximately 5,610 pounds of its barbecue chicken salad because the product contains diced onions that were recalled for potential Listeria contamination last week.

Huxtable’s Kitchen of Vernon, CA issued a voluntary recall of the BBQ chicken salads Friday after another company – Gill’s Onions – announced last week that a sample of its diced onions had tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes. Huxtable’s, which uses onions processed by Gill’s in its barbecue chicken salad, was notified of the potential contamination by a supplier and alerted USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the problem.

The Huxtable’s products subject to recall are sold in 14.5 ounce trays and labeled as “TRADER JOE’S BBQ CHICKEN SALAD” Friday.

They bear establishment number “P-11079″ inside the USDA mark of inspection, as well as a use-by date of July 30 or earlier. The items were produced between July 20 and 24 and were distributed to retail establishments in Arizona, New Mexico, Southern Nevada and Texas.

A list of retail establishments that received the product will be posted on the FSIS website when it becomes available.

No illnesses have been connected to consumption of the recalled product.

Customers with questions can contact the company’s Director of Quality Assurance, Juan Castro, at 323-923-2885.
