Frozen Chile Products Recalled for Listeria
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A family-owned food company in Albuquerque has announced a voluntarily recall of its frozen non-ready-to-eat green chile products.
Bueno Foods says the products have the potential to contain low levels of the common bacteria Listeria monocytogenes in its uncooked state.
Company officials say tests performed on samples of the product cooked per the cooking instructions on the product's label showed no Listeria present.
Bueno Foods is calling it a voluntary recall since the green chile products are unlikely to pose a health risk and there are no immediate reports of any illnesses.
Company officials say they expect to have their green chile products back in stores in two weeks.
Bueno Foods has been located in Albuquerque since 1951.
