As noted in this article in the New York Times, there has been a product recall of
About 2.8 million pounds of fully cooked Oscar Mayer/Louis Rich chicken breast cuts and strips, manufactured by Carolina Culinary Foods, because it could be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, which can cause listeriosis. Listeriosis is an uncommon but potentially fatal disease that can cause serious or fatal infections in children, the elderly or those with weakened immune systems. Symptoms include high fever, severe headache and nausea. No illnesses have been reported.
