Sukhi’s Gourmet Indian Foods recalls chicken tikka masala products
Sukhi’s Gourmet Indian Foods is voluntarily recalling some frozen chicken tikka masala products after testing indicated the presence of listeria monocytogenes, according to a Department of Defense All Food and Drug Activity message sent Nov. 15.
The Defense Commissary Agency has publicized this recall to all its stores, said Chris Wicker, a public health advisor for DeCA headquarters at Fort Lee, Virginia. Whenever a commissary has a recalled or withdrawn product in its inventory, the product is immediately removed from store shelves.
The following product is affected by this recall:
- Sukhi’s Chicken Tikka Masala with Naan Bread & Basmati Rice, 11 ounces: UPC 7-6722602505-6 with a “Use By” date of Nov. 7, 2018, lot number 83790 and bearing establishment number P-44187.
Listeria monocytogenes may cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the frail or elderly, and those with weakened immune systems. Healthy adults may only suffer short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Listeria infections may also cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
No illnesses have been reported to date, but the illness caused by these bacteria can take up to 70 days to appear. Customers should return this product to the commissary of purchase for a full refund.
Questions about this recall should be directed to Sukhi’s Gourmet Indian Foods customer service at (510) 336-8372.
