New York City company recalls meat, poultry

NEW YORK (AP) - A New York City company is recalling more than a-quarter million pounds of meat and poultry because it might be contaminated with Listeria bacteria.

The U.S. Agriculture Department says the recall includes several different brands of fresh and frozen products made by Gourmet Boutique of Queens.

They include some types of chicken salad and sandwiches sold under the name Gourmet Boutique and several frozen wraps and burritos sold under the names "Jan's" and "Archer Farms."

The USDA says the problem was discovered through sampling by federal food safety inspectors and Florida agriculture officials.

There have been no reports of illnesses associated with the recall.

Gourmet Boutique says it's made "environmental changes" at its plants to prevent a repeat of the problem.
