A Houston company has recalled almost 1,800 pounds of ready-to-eat salad with chicken products because a corn ingredient may be contaminated with salmonella and listeria.

The recall includes meat and poultry taquitos produced between July 1 and October 10, 2018, by Ruiz Food Products, according to a Friday press release from the FSIS.

These items were shipped to distributors nationwide, the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) says.

The products have the number "P-4226" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

There have been no confirmed reports of illness from customers eating the food. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Anyone who has purchased these products are urged not to consume them.

The issue is related to diced onions used in the Texas-based food company's beef and cheese taquitos, which were recalled by the supplier over salmonella and listeria fears, according to USDA's website.

Salmonella can cause abdominal cramps and fever. Anyone with the affected taquitos should discard them or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Listeria can cause fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions.
