NEW YORK - Due to possible contamination with the bacteria known as Listeria monocytogenes, Queens-based food company Gourmet Boutique is recalling more than 286,000 pounds of meat and poultry.

According to Deseret News, the voluntary recall of fresh and frozen products includes more than 30 items sent to food service and retail establishments nationwide.

Products 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.

Target sells the Archer Farms brand, but Amy Reilly, a spokeswoman for the company, said Sunday that the recalled items are sold only in SuperTarget stores.

Of the recalled items, she said, the SuperTarget stores carry only 15-ounce packages of Archer Farms Frozen Mini Beef Burrito, 9-ounce packages of Archer Farms Frozen Pulled Pork Burrito and 9-ounce packages of Archer Farms Grilled Chicken Burrito With Corn and Black Beans.

The fresh meat and poultry salad products were produced between April 19 and April 24. The frozen products were produced between Oct. 23, 2007 and April 23, 2008, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said.
