WASHINGTON (AP/WOOD) – More than 372,000 pounds of hot dogs and corn dogs made earlier this month are being recalled over concerns of listeria contamination.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says Altus, Oklahoma-based Bar-S Foods is recalling five chicken and pork products that could potentially be contaminated with listeria. The USDA says Bar-S hasn’t received test results, but is recalling the items due to recurring listeria issues at the company.

The recalled items were made between July 10 and 13 and are stamped with an establishment number of EST. P-81A.  The recall includes the following foods:

  • 16-oz/1-lb. packages of Bar-S Classic Bun Length Franks made with chicken, pork added | Use by date of 10/11/2016 | Case code 209

The USDA says the recalled hot dogs and corn dogs were shipped to grocery stores nationwide. According to Bar-S’s website, the company distributes to 45 Michigan retail chains, including Meijer, Family Fare, Wal-Mart and Dollar Tree.

Listeria primarily affects older adults, pregnant women newborns and adults with weakened immune systems.

The government says no reports of illness have been linked to the products.
