Lunds and Byerly's have issued a voluntary recall on certain chicken products.
"We have been informed of a possible food safety issue involving Listeria Monocytogenes in a recent supply of chicken we used to make select varieties of marinated chicken breasts, chicken kabobs and chicken meal kits," according to the notice on the Lunds and Byerly's website.
"As a precautionary measure, we have removed these items until we are confident the potential issue is safely resolved. To date, there have been no reported or known illnesses related to the consumption of these products."
The stores' staff has notified the Minnesota Department of Agriculture about this issue so they can conduct further follow-up with the supplier.
A meat department employee at Golden Valley's Byerly's said consumers will not find any of the impacted products on the shelves.
All products included in this recall are noted below.

Staff noted that no other varieties of chicken in the stores are affected by this recall.
"This food safety issue was discovered after we proactively had samples of this chicken tested by an independent, third-party lab during the development of a new line of prepared chicken offerings," according to the website. "This is an added preventative food safety measure we take any time we are developing a new perishable item."
