Bar-S Foods Company of Altus, Oklahoma has issued a recall for approximately 372,684 pounds of chicken and pork hot dog and corn dog products that may be adulterated with Listeria monocytogenes, according to USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

Bar-S has not received test results for Listeria monocytogenes in connection with the recalled products, but decided to remove the products from shelves a precautionary measure because of ongoing issues. There have been no confirmed reports of illnesses or adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
