Starbucks recalls prepackaged breakfast sandwich over listeria concerns

SEATTLE (KRON) — Starbucks is recalling one of its prepackaged breakfast sandwiches because of concern over listeria.

It is the 6-ounce package of sausage, egg and cheddar cheese on an English Muffin.

The FDA said it might be contaminated with listeria.

The sandwiches were sold at Starbucks stores in Arkansas, Texas and Oklahoma as well.

There have been no reports of illness, but Starbucks is still pulling it from its shelves.

Listeria can cause serious bacterial infections and is sometimes fatal.

CNN and KRON’s Lindsay Clark contributed to this report.
