Bueno Foods Restocks Green Chiles After Recall
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A family-owned food company in Albuquerque has announced it is restocking grocery store shelves with its green chile products.
Bueno Foods says it began supplying frozen green chile to restaurants and other food service customers a few weeks ago. The grocery stores began getting their supplies Thursday.
The new product has a different sticker, and company officials say the chile flavor is more concentrated and intense.
In February, Bueno Foods announced a voluntary recall of its frozen non-ready-to-eat green chile products, saying the products had the potential to contain low levels of the common bacteria Listeria monocytogenes in its uncooked state.
Bueno Foods says it is now investing millions of dollars in equipment to adjust to stricter federal standards that may be on the horizon for frozen products.
