The safety of our customers and partners is of the utmost importance and we take our obligation to provide safe products seriously. We have learned that Flying Food Group, a Lawrenceville establishment, and one of our suppliers, is recalling approximately 200lbs of ingredients for ready-to-eat chicken wraps and plates delivered to Starbucks retail stores in Georgia and Alabama due to potential health concerns. There have been no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products.

The products subject to recall were the Starbucks Chipotle Chicken Wraps Bistro Box and the Starbucks Chicken and Hummus Bistro Box sold in Georgia and Alabama stores only on or before 15 July 2011.

These products were produced on 13 July 2011 and have an 'Enjoy by 071511' date on the bottom left corner of the package and bear the establishment number 'P-34373' inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The recalled products are no longer available in Starbucks stores.
