Oscar Mayer is recalling more than 52 thousand pounds of ready to eat chicken breast strips with rib meat.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service says that some of the packages could be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes which can cause Listeriosis.
Health officials say that listeriosis could cause high fever, severe headaches, stiffness in the neck, and nausea.
The recall affects all the six ounce packages that have the number "P-19676" inside the front of the package. On the back of the package is a "Use By' date of "19 Apr 2007."
So far there have been no reports of illness. Listeriosis is not common but could be fatal.
