E.Coli, metal and even a dead bat has have been found in recalled food. In fact, food recalls are increasing. Yet, that might actually be a good sign. Here's why. USA TODAY

More Tyson Foods chicken is being recalled for possible listeria contamination.

The massive recall, first announced Saturday, grew by nearly 500,000 pounds Thursday, according to an update posted on the recall notice on the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service website.

Approximately 8,955,296 pounds of frozen and cooked chicken products are part of the recall.

Walmart, Target, Kroger, Publix, H-E-B and Wegmans are among the retailers that sold Tyson branded fully cooked and frozen products. Private label products are also part of the recall and some were made for restaurants, including 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 Saturday 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.

Listeria can cause common food poisoning symptoms, like diarrhea and fever, the CDC says. But it can also cause severe illness, known as invasive listeriosis, when the bacteria spread beyond the gut to other parts of the body. 

Symptoms of severe illness usually start one to four weeks after eating contaminated food, but symptoms can start as late as 10 weeks after.

Adults 65 or older, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems are at higher risk for severe illness from listeria, the CDC says. 

A full list of the retailers that sold the affected products was not available Thursday. It will be posted on the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service recall website when available, Tyson Foods said in a news release.

The USDA said consumers should not eat the products and should throw them away or return them. The CDC advises businesses to not serve or sell the recalled products.

Consumers with questions about the recall can call or text 1-855-382-3101, the company said, noting customer service representatives will be available beginning Sunday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CDT.

The following products are included in the recall, which in addition to products sold at stores nationwide, includes chicken distributed to restaurants and institutions, including hospitals, nursing facilities, restaurants and schools.

Each package of the recalled products has the establishment code P-7089. A full list of the recalled products is posted on the USDA website and Tysonfoods.com. Find product codes and date codes of the affected products on the USDA list.

Tyson Chicken Recall Expands to Include 500,000 More Pounds of Products

Self 10 July, 2021 - 11:13am

The Tyson chicken recall was first announced by the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) on July 3 following an investigation linking frozen Tyson chicken products to three cases of listeriosis. At first, the recall included a whopping 8,492,832 pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat chicken products from Tyson. And on July 8, the FSIS announced that an additional 462,464 pounds of frozen chicken products were being included in the recall, for a total amount of 8,955,296 pounds. 

The recall expansion does not include any new product names or product codes, according to an editor's note appended to the original FSIS announcement. However, there are new additional date codes of previously recalled products. The FSIS has updated its full list of product names, package sizes, product codes, and date codes included in the Tyson chicken recall. Consumers can also check the FSIS site for images of the labels on recalled products. 

There are 30 different Tyson-made products covered by the recall. They are all precooked frozen chicken products (including diced chicken, chicken strips, chicken wings, pulled chicken, and chicken pizza). Nearly all of the items were for sale under the Tyson brand name, but the recall also includes products from other brands that contain chicken produced by Tyson. The other brands are Casey’s General Store, Jet’s Pizza, Little Caesars, and Marco’s Pizza. While almost half of all the recalled products are 10-pound bags of Tyson chicken, the recalled packages range in weight from 12 ounces to 40 pounds. 

The recalled products, made at a Tyson plant between December 26, 2020, and April 13, 2021, have been distributed to a wide variety of places across the country: Grocery stores, restaurants, hospitals, Department of Defense locations, long-term care facilities, and schools. The new update to the FSIS announcement notes that the recalled products sent out to schools were not part of the meals that the USDA provides to students participating in the National School Lunch Program.

The FSIS was first notified of two cases of listeriosis, the potentially severe foodborne illness caused by listeria, in early June. An investigation conducted in collaboration with state public health authorities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) turned up one more case, for a total of three. All three people had eaten food served at a long-term care facility or hospital, per the CDC. One person died. 

Investigators linked the listeriosis cases to Tyson frozen chicken products through lab testing. The strain of Listeria monocytogenes found in the infected individuals was closely related to a strain of listeria found on two samples of Tyson frozen chicken that were tested during routine sample collection by the FSIS. 

While most people who get listeria will experience mild illness (including symptoms like fever and diarrhea) and recover without specific medical care, the bacterial infection poses more of a threat to certain populations: people who are pregnant, newborns, adults over age 65, and people with weakened immune systems. These individuals are more likely to develop severe symptoms and invasive listeria. That's when the infection spreads outside of the gut to other parts of the body, potentially causing symptoms such as confusion, convulsions, and loss of balance, per the CDC.

People who discover any products connected to the Tyson chicken recall in their freezer are advised by the FSIS to either return it or dispose of it. 

Tyson recall grows to nearly 9 million pounds of chicken contaminated with listeria

Dayton Daily News 10 July, 2021 - 11:13am

After a recall of nearly 8.5 million pounds of ready-to-eat chicken over the weekend, the United States Department of Agriculture reported that an additional 500,000 pounds of chicken was recalled, bringing the total recalled chicken to nearly 9 million pounds.

Tyson Foods Inc. is recalling 8,955,296 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken after multiple cases of Listeria monocytogenes were linked to Tyson products. One death from listeriosis was linked to Tyson products, a release from the Food Safety and Inspection Service reported.

The chicken was shipped nationwide to retailers and institutions, including hospitals, nursing facilities, restaurants, schools and Department of Defense locations, a release said. The contaminated products were reportedly sold between December 26, 2020 and April 13, 2021.

Initial reports show that on June 9, the FSIS was notified of two cases of listeriosis. After working with the Centers for Disease Control and state public health officials, FSIS found evidence linking Listeria monocytogenes to precooked chicken from Tyson. Epidemiologic investigation found an additional three listeriosis cases, including one death, between April 6 and June 5 of this year. Two samples of Listeria monocytogenes were found in establishments and one sample was found at Tyson Foods Inc. FSIS is working to learn if there have been any more cases of listeriosis tied to Tyson Foods products.

Listeriosis can cause fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms. An invasive infection spreads beyond the gastrointestinal tract. In pregnant women, the infection can cause miscarriages, stillbirths, premature delivery or life-threatening infection of the newborn.

Serious and sometimes fatal infections in older adults and persons with weakened immune systems. Listeriosis is treated with antibiotics. Anyone in the higher-risk categories who experience flu-like symptoms within two months after eating contaminated food should seek medical care and tell the health care provider about eating the contaminated food.

Tyson released a list of products that are possibly contaminated. The products all bear the establishment number “EST. P-7089” on the packaging. FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumer and institutional freezers. If you see these products, do not consume or serve them. Instead, throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.

Tyson recall expanded to almost 9 million pounds of frozen chicken over listeria risk: see the list

PennLive 10 July, 2021 - 11:13am

Tyson Foods has expanded a recall of its frozen chicken products to almost 9 million pounds.

Earlier this week, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced a recall of more than 8.4 million pounds of Tyson frozen, cooked chicken products because of a deadly listeria contamination risk.

Yesterday, the recall was expanded to include 8,955,296 pounds of chicken. All of the products were produced between Dec. 26, 2020, and April 13, 2021.

All products will have the establishment number - EST. P-7089 - on the bag or inside the USDA inspection mark.

The FSIS said the chicken was “shipped nationwide to retailers and institutions, including hospitals, nursing facilities, restaurants, schools and Department of Defense locations.”

The products were packaged under the Tyson name as well as Marco’s Pizza, Jet’s Pizza, Little Caesars and Casey’s General Store.

The FSIS said it was notified on June 9, 2021, of two people who were sick with listeriosis.

“Working in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state public health partners, FSIS determined there is evidence linking the listeria monocytogenes illnesses to pre-cooked chicken produced at Tyson Foods Inc.

The epidemiologic investigation identified three listeriosis illnesses, including one death, between April 6, 2021, and June 5, 2021.

During routine sample collection, FSIS collected two precooked chicken samples from two establishments that are closely related genetically to listeria monocytogenes from ill people. One of the samples was collected at Tyson Foods Inc. FSIS is continuing to work with federal and state public health partners to determine if there are additional illnesses linked to these products.”

Listeriosis is a serious infection that primarily affects older people with weakened immune systems and pregnant women and newborns.

Symptoms include fever, muscle aches, headaches, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions “sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms.”

The illness can be treated with antibiotics.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced the recall a month after two consumers reported falling ill with listeriosis. Further investigation revealed one death besides the two listeriosis cases traced to pre-cooked chicken produced by Dexter, Missouri-based Tyson Foods, according to a statement from the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The recall involves three dozen products containing pre-cooked chicken marketed under the Tyson and other labels. The recalled products bear establishment number “EST. P-7089” on the product bag or inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped nationwide to retailers and institutions, including hospitals, nursing facilities, restaurants, schools and military locations.

Chicken Recall Expands Over Listeria Concerns

Patch.com 10 July, 2021 - 11:13am

WISCONSIN — Due to concerns over possible Listeria contamination, a sweeping recall of Tyson chicken products has expanded to include nearly 9 million pounds of food.

The recall includes frozen, fully cooked products and private label products for customers. The products were distributed nationwide. Each package of the affected retail products has the establishment code P-7089.

The initial recall included approximately 8.49 million pounds of chicken, but has grown to include 8.95 million pounds of chicken. The recalled products and product codes remain the same, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The recalled chicken was sent to retailers and institutions like hospitals, nursing homes, restaurants, schools and Department of Defense locations, the USDA said.

On June 9, two people became ill with listeriosis, which is caused by exposure to the Listeria monocytogenes bacteria. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and USDA discovered there is evidence linking the illnesses to precooked chicken produced at Tyson Foods.

"The epidemiologic investigation identified three listeriosis illnesses, including one death, between April 6, 2021 and June 5, 2021," the USDA said. "During routine sample collection, FSIS collected two precooked chicken samples from two establishments that are closely related genetically to Listeria monocytogenes from ill people. One of the samples was collected at Tyson Foods Inc. FSIS is continuing to work with federal and state public health partners to determine if there are additional illnesses linked to these products."

If You Have This Tyson Food in Your Freezer, Throw It Out, USDA Warns

Almost nine million pounds of this food have been recalled.

On July 8, the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced a recall of approximately 8,955,296 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken products due to possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes. The recall was first announced on July 3 with 8.5 million pounds of possibly contaminated food, and then 450,000 more pounds were tacked on after additional review.

According to the USDA statement, "These items were shipped nationwide to retailers and institutions, including hospitals, nursing facilities, restaurants, schools and Department of Defense locations." The recall affects dozens of popular products, including chicken strips, diced chicken, and pizza with chicken on it. The products subject to recall have the number "EST. P-7089" on the product bag or inside the USDA mark of inspection. See the full list here.

Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogene can cause listeriosis. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there have been at least three cases of listeriosis related to these Tyson products so far. The outbreak has already caused one death in Delaware, and two people fell ill in Texas. The CDC reports that an estimated 1,600 people in the U.S. get listeriosis each year, and about 260 die from the disease.

According to the Mayo Clinic, symptoms of listeriosis can include fever, chills, muscle aches, nausea, and diarrhea. If the infection spreads to your nervous system, the Mayo Clinic says the symptoms can become more severe. These more intense symptoms include headache, stiff neck, confusion or changes in alertness, loss of balance, and convulsions. The Mayo Clinic advises that if you experience any of these symptoms, you should seek medical care.

According to the CDC, people with listeriosis usually report symptoms starting one to four weeks after consuming contaminated food, with some reporting symptoms as late as 70 days after exposure or as early as the same day of exposure.

According to the CDC, there are certain groups of people who are more commonly affected by listeriosis. The agency notes that older adults, people with weakened immune systems, pregnant women, and newborns are all at an increased risk of this illness. If you fall into one of these categories, you should take extra caution when consuming products that are at risk of hosting listeria.
