    One of the products being recalled for concerns of listeria contamination.

    More than 252,000 pounds of frozen burritos are being recalled because of possible listeria contamination.

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture on Saturday announced the Green Chile Food Company recall for various frozen burritos containing meat and poultry, after a routine sample of a beef and potato burrito found a problem.

    There have been no confirmed reports of illness due to consuming these products.  

    The Las Cruces, New Mexico-based company made and packaged the ready-to-eat foods between March 8 and May 10, and the products have the establishment number listed as EST. 21740. See the full list of affected products here

Sanders pointed to a retracted CNN story as basis of the White House's "frustration" and skepticism with ongoing coverage, while one reporter accused the White House of "inflammatory rhetoric."

    Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase. 

    The burritos were sent to sellers in California, Illinois, Oregon and South Dakota.

    Though there aren't any confirmed reports of people getting sick eating the burritos, the USDA cautions that listeria can cause serious illness, particularly among those who are elderly, pregnant, newborn or suffering from weak immune systems.
