About 1,550 pounds of packaged meals sold in Hawaii 7-Eleven stores are being recalled.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture said Wednesday Honolulu-based Warabeya U.S.A is recalling the meals that may be contaminated with listeria.
The recall includes fried chicken and teriyaki chicken boxed meals, known in Hawaii as bentos. Meals labeled "big bento," breakfast scramble bowl" and "little smokies snack pack" are also recalled.
Each package is marked with a best-eaten-by date and time of June 30, 11:30 a.m.
The products were produced on June 28.
The USDA says the problem was discovered through microbiological testing.
There have been no reports of illnesses.
