California Company Recalls 64,000 Pounds Of Chicken, Pork

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Northern California food supplier is recalling 64,000 pounds of chicken and pork products because some broccoli in the products was found to be contaminated with listeria.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture said Tuesday that Taylor Farms Pacific of Tracy is recalling several premade dishes after routine testing discovered the contamination.

The USDA says each item bears the establishment number “P-34013” or “EST. 34013” inside the department’s mark of inspection.

The products were produced between Feb. 6, 2011, and Feb. 23, 2011, and shipped to Arizona, California, Colorado and Wyoming.

The agency says it has not received reports of anyone sickened as a result of the contamination.

Listeria infections can cause severe and sometimes fatal illnesses in young children, the elderly and those with frail immune systems.

    What a useless story – how about telling us the NAME of the affected product so we can see if we have it in our freezers!

  2. roy rogers says:

    What stores, what brand, and what the heck in broccoli doing in the products anyway!

  3. Lenny says:

    Someone will have to die first before further information is released!

  4. joke says:

    At least KTLA told us what company it was, Taylor Farms Pacific, by theway.
    Way to report CBS!

    I love how people make comments when they have not fully read the article.

    Barbara – it says “The USDA says each item bears the establishment number “P-34013″ or “EST. 34013″ inside the department’s mark of inspection.” This is what you look for on the packaging of any premade chicken products you have purchased since Feb. 6, 2011.

    Roy Rogers – it says “The U.S. Department of Agriculture said Tuesday that Taylor Farms Pacific of Tracy is recalling several premade dishes after routine testing discovered the contamination.” These are ‘premade dishes’ which means this is most likely a microwave dinner. That is why the broccoli is in there.

    It boggles the mind how some people need to be spoon fed information that is right in front of their eyes.

      I do agree with you to a point now that I have read it again but it could have been made clearer by simply stating the names of the meals and the name of the company that produced them.
