Tyson's Food Recalls Over 8.5M Pounds Of Frozen Chicken After Cases Of Listeria Emerge

Combined Shape

Tyson’s Foods recalls more than 8.5 million pounds of frozen ready-to-eat chicken products after three cases of listeria were discovered, and one person has died.

The company and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced the recall just one day before the country prepared for the 4th of July celebrations.

The FSIS reported that two people became ill with listeriosis in early June due to Tyson Foods products produced in Missouri between December 26, 2020, and April 13, 2021. Three more listeriosis illnesses, including one death, have since been linked to affected products having the establishment number “EST. P-7089” on the product bag or inside the USDA mark of inspection.

“While there is no conclusive evidence that the products were contaminated at the time of shipment, the voluntary recall is being initiated out of an abundance of caution,” Tyson Foods Inc. said in a statement Saturday.

Listeria monocytogenes, a pathogen that can cause listeriosis, can cause flu-like symptoms up to two months after consumption. It can be fatal in severe cases.

The recall will consist of Tyson branded products sold in restaurants and stores nationwide, including Jet’s Pizza, Casey’s General Sheets, Marco’s Pizza, and Little Caesars. Among the grocery stores which sold the products are Walmart, Publix, and Wegmans.

According to the USDA, consumers should not consume the products and should instead discard or return them. Businesses are advised not to serve or sell recalled products, according to the CDC.

In addition, the refrigerators in the areas where the meat is stored should be thoroughly cleaned, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Listeria monocytogenes can survive and spread to other foods and surfaces in the refrigerator easily.

“No other Tyson products are impacted by the recall, including but not limited to any Tyson brand fresh chicken; frozen, raw chicken products or chicken nuggets,” the company said.
