About this Deal
Tyson Foods is recalling approximately 8.5 million pounds of frozen, cooked chicken products for possible listeria contamination.
The company and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the recall Saturday night.
The recall includes Tyson branded products and private label products for restaurants, which include Jet’s Pizza, Casey’s General Store, Marco’s Pizza and Little Caesars.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also issued a food safety alert saying the products – which were shipped nationwide to retailers and institutions including hospitals, nursing facilities, restaurants and schools – may be linked to a listeria outbreak that has caused three illnesses and one death.
A list of the retailers that sold the affected products was not available Saturday and will be posted on the USDA website in the future, according to Tyson's news release.
The company said it has been working with the USDA on the recall and said "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."
