July 28, 2011 -- Yogurt, salads, and sandwiches have been added to the list of listeria-contaminated foods recalled from Starbucks, Race Trac, and convenience stores in Georgia, Alabama, and Florida.
Previously, the list included some 7,000 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken, turkey, beef, and pork products.
The foods came from a single source: Flying Foods LLC, based in Georgia.
Starbucks says that even before the expanded recall, it had pulled all Flying Foods products off its shelves and destroyed them.
The products in the expanded recall were distributed by Core-Mark to various convenience stores and drug stores in all three states. They were also sold at Race Trac stores in Georgia and by Starbucks shops in Georgia and Alabama.
No illnesses associated with the products have been reported. However, listeria can cause fatal or disabling infections in some people, particularly people with HIV, people taking immune-suppressing drugs, elderly people, and pregnant women.
The recalled products are:
Core-mark Atlanta Division (distributed in Alabama, Georgia, Florida):
Race Trac (distributed in Georiga):
Starbucks (distributed in Georgia and Alabama):
*These packages bear the USDA establishment number "P-34373" or EST. 34373 inside the USDA mark of inspection.
