May 13 (UPI) -- New Mexico-based food company Green Chile recalled more than 250,000 lbs., of frozen, pre-cooked burritos over potential listeria contamination, officials said.

The recall covers a dozen varieties of ready-to-eat microwavable burritos manufactured between May 8 and 10. The products were distributed in four states: California, Illinois, Oregon and South Dakota. The potential listeria exposure was discovered during a routine food safety test by inspectors at the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

There have been no confirmed illnesses as a result of individuals eating the Green Chile products, the USDA said. Anyone who has bought one of the items should throw it away or return it to the place of purchase.
