WASHINGTON, Feb. 28, 2007 - Carolina Culinary Foods, a West Columbia,
S.C., firm, is voluntarily expanding its Feb.18 recall of fully cooked
Oscar Mayer/Louis Rich chicken breast cuts and strips that may be
contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Department of
Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.

The front of each package subject to this recall bears the establishment
number "P-19676" inside the USDA mark of inspection. On the back of each
package appears a "Use by" date. Products subject to recall bear a "Use
by" date earlier than "28 MAY 2007." The expanded recall totals
approximately 2.8 million pounds.

Only the following Oscar Mayer/Louis Rich chicken breast cuts and strips
are subject to recall. The list is inclusive of products included in
both the original and expanded recall actions. [View Labels, PDF Only]


* 6-ounce packages of "Oscar Mayer/Louis Rich Chicken Breast Strips
with Rib Meat, Southwestern Seasoned."
* 6-ounce packages of "Oscar Mayer/Louis Rich Chicken Breast Strips
with Rib Meat Grilled."
* 6-ounce packages of "Oscar Mayer/Louis Rich Chicken Restaurant
Style Breaded Chicken Breast Strips."
* 6-ounce packages of "Oscar Mayer/Louis Rich Chicken Breast Strips
with Rib Meat Italian Style."
* 6-ounce packages of "Oscar Mayer/Louis Rich Oven Roasted Chicken
Breast Cuts with Rib Meat."
* 6-ounce packages of "Oscar Mayer/Louis Rich Chicken, Honey Roasted
Chicken Breast Cuts with Rib Meat."
* 12-ounce packages of "Oscar Mayer/Louis Rich Chicken Breast Strips
with Rib Meat Grilled."
* 12-ounce packages of "Oscar Mayer/Louis Rich Chicken Breast Strips
with Rib Meat Southwestern Seasoned."

The expanded recall is based on additional sampling initiated by Kraft
Foods and conducted at a non-government laboratory. FSIS has received no
reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products. The
chicken breast cuts and strips were distributed to retail establishments
nationwide.

Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause
listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Healthy people
rarely contract listeriosis. However, listeriosis can cause high fever,
severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea. Listeriosis can also cause
miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal
infections in those with weakened immune systems, such as infants, the
elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy.

Media with questions about the recall should call Elisabeth Wenner at
(847) 646-4271. Consumers with questions about the recall should contact
Kraft Consumer Response at 800-308-1841.

Consumers with food safety questions can "Ask Karen," the FSIS virtual
representative available 24 hours a day at AskKaren.gov. The toll-free
USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) is
available in English and Spanish and can be reached from l0 a.m. to 4
p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday. Recorded food safety messages
are available 24 hours a day.
