- Nearly 223,000 pounds of chicken salad made by a Boston company has been recalled.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service says the chicken salad made by Boston Salads and Provisions Company Inc., is possibly contaminated with listeria.
The products were made between Aug. 23 and Oct. 14 for sale to retail locations in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
They carry the brand names Boston Salads; Dietz & Watson; Market Source; Price Chopper; Northern Haserot; and Rachael's Gourmet.
No illnesses have been reported due to consumption of the chicken.
Listeriosis can cause fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms. It is particularly dangerous to pregnant women, the elderly or those with weakened immune systems.
