(WHNT) — Tyson Foods Inc. has recalled almost 8.5 million pounds of ready-to-eat (RTE) chicken products due to possible listeria contamination.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), the frozen, fully cooked products that are possibly contaminated were produced between December 26, 2020 and April 13, 2021.
Consumption of food with listeria, also known as L. monocytogenes, can cause listeriosis, an infection that causes fever, muscle aches, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, and convulsions sometimes preceded by gastrointestinal symptoms. The infection is most common in older adults, people with weakened immune systems, pregnant women, and newborns.
The products subject to recall have the establishment number “EST. P-7089.” Consumers are advised against eating these products, and institutions should not serve these products.
