MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A Burnsville company that makes custom frozen foods is recalling more than 60,000 pounds of meat and poultry products after food safety officials say a sample tested positive for listeria.

The Agriculture Department’s Food and Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Wednesday that Buddy’s Kitchen is recalling 62,488 pounds of breakfast products.

The FSIS says a product sample tested positive for listeria, which can cause a serious infection in humans.
