SK Food Group is recalling some of its chicken products because of salmonella and Listeria concerns.

A Seattle-based company is recalling nearly 175,000 pounds of frozen Jenny Craig chicken wraps — including some shipped to Michigan stores — due to bacteria risk, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Federal officials said the products could contain vegetables that may be contaminated with salmonella and listeria.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products, according to the agency.

The recall applies to 174,207 pounds of chicken wrap items produced from Oct. 15, 2017 through Oct. 15, 2018. The recalled products have establishment number “EST. 45367” or “EST. 20552” stamped on the product centerfold.

In addition to Michigan, the products were shipped directly to consumers through catalog sales in California, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Maryland, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Texas.

Officials said the manufacturer of the products, SK Food Group, received notice Oct. 14, 2018, the vegetables used in their chicken wrap products were being recalled by a supplier due to salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes concerns.

Salmonella usually causes fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, according to the release. 

Listeria usually causes flu-like symptoms in healthy adults, but can result in serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly and others with weakened immune systems. It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
