A New Mexico company that recalled more than 252,000 pounds of frozen burritos because of possible listeria contamination says it's relocating. Green Chile Concepts LLC says it will start making food products at its new manufacturing plant starting Monday in a long-planned move. The US Department of Agriculture on Saturday announced the Green Chile Food Company recall for various frozen burritos containing meat and poultry after a routine sample of a beef and potato burrito found a problem, the AP reports.
The company based in Las Cruces, NM, voluntarily recalled the burritos, which have been sold frozen, refrigerated, or served hot at convenience stores, vending machines, and stores through distributors in California, Illinois, Oregon, and South Dakota. There have been no reports of people getting sick, though listeria can cause serious illness and even death.
