Food Service Breakfasts Recalled for Listeria RiskOctober 8, 2014 — Buddy’s Kitchen is recalling about 62,488 pounds of meat and poultry products because they may be contaminated with Listeria, a bacteria that can cause serious food poisoning.

Buddy’s Kitchen prepares over 100,000 meals every day for a variety of industries, including airline catering, retail stores, convenience stores, vending machines, speciality restaurants, and senior living food service.

The problem was discovered by inspectors from the USDA who found a positive sample for Listeria monocytogenes. The product was held, and Buddy’s Kitchen determined the source of the contamination was roasted red skin potatoes from an independent supplier.

No cases of food poisoning have been reported, but listeriosis can cause severe fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, convulsions, and sometimes gastrointestinal symptoms. Invasive infections can spread to the bloodstream and cause life-threatening sepsis. In pregnant women, infection can cause miscarriage, stillbirth, or premature delivery of a baby.
