Greencore USA, a Rhode Island establishment, is recalling approximately 1,341 pounds of meat and poultry products that were produced without the benefit of federal inspection and outside inspection hours, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The meat and poultry wrap and salad items were produced on April 7, 14, 18, 21 and 25. The following products are subject to recall:

  • 7.7-oz. packages of “STARBUCKS SOUTHWEST STYLE STEAK WRAP” with use-by dates of 4/10/2016 and 4/24/2016.
  • 8.2-oz. packages of “STARBUCKS THAI-STYLE PEANUT CHICKEN WRAP” with use-by dates of 4/10/2016 and 4/17/2016.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-45540” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to distributors for retail sale in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York and Rhode Island.

The problem was discovered by FSIS inspection program personnel while reviewing establishment records during verification activities. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at
