The Food Safety Inspection Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced yesterday that Tyson Foods Inc. has added almost 500,000 pounds of frozen chicken to its existing recall. On July 3, the USDA said Tyson Foods was recalling approximately 8,492,832 pounds of its ready-to-eat chicken products due to a possible listeria contamination. That number has now grown to 8,955,296 pounds.
The frozen, fully cooked products were produced between Dec. 26, 2020, and April 13, 2021, and were shipped nationwide to stores, hospitals, nursing homes, restaurants, schools and more. The USDA noted that “while the product was distributed to schools, it resulted from a commercial sale and was not part of food provided by the USDA for the National School Lunch Program.”
Recalled items have the establishment number “EST. P-7089” on the product bag or inside the USDA inspection mark.
