Bacon Bits Culprit in 7-Eleven Recall

DENVER -- Nearly 3,600 pounds of bacon bit products were recalled nationwide, as they have been tied to 7-Eleven Inc.'s recent recall of burritos and sandwiches in Colorado, according to a report in The Cherry Creek News.

Patrick Cudahy of Cudahy, Wis., recalled the product due to possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes. In Colorado, the bacon bit products were distributed to 7-Eleven c-stores and smaller independent grocery stores in burritos and sandwiches. 7-Eleven stores sold the products labeled as "Burritos with Potatoes, Bacon, Eggs and Monterey Jack Cheese" and "Chicken Club on Cracked Wheat Bread" sandwiches.

Smaller, independent grocery stores sold products labeled "Bacon, Egg, Potato and Monterey Jack Burrito" on the Home Fresh sandwich label.

The distribution company, Home Fresh Sandwich Distributors, said all of the affected products were pulled from stores, according to the report.

The problem was discovered through in-house testing by an establishment that received the product, according to the report. No illnesses have been reported.
