Chicken, pork hot dogs recalled over Listeria concerns

About 372,684 pounds of hot dogs, corn dogs recalled by Bar-S Food Company

Bar-S Foods Company is recalling about 372,684 pounds of chicken and pork hot dog and corn dog products that may be adulterated with Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.

The ready-to-eat, chicken and pork hot dog and corn dog items were produced on July 10, 11, 12, and 13, at the Bar-S facility in Altus, Oklahoma.

Bar-S Foods notified FSIS’ Dallas District Office on July 19  of its intention to recall five chicken and pork hot dog and corn dog products that could potentially be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. The firm has not received test results for Listeria monocytogenes in connection with the recalled products, but due to recurring Listeria species issues at the firm, it has decided to remove the products from commerce as a precautionary measure. There have been no confirmed reports of illnesses or adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
