The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has announced a recall of more than 8.4 million pounds of Tyson Foods Inc. ready-to-eat chicken products due to a deadly contamination risk.

The chicken may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, a pathogen that can cause listeriosis, which can cause flu-like symptoms up to two months after being consumed. In severe cases, it can lead to death.

According to the FSIS, two people became ill with listeriosis in early June due to Tyson Foods products made in Missouri between Dec. 26, 2020, and April 13, 2021. Three more listeriosis illnesses, including one death, have since been traced back to the affected products with 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.

A total of 24 Tyson Foods Inc. products were affected, including items from Little Caesars, Marco’s Pizza, Jet’s Pizza and Casey’s General Store, and shipped to retailers nationwide.

More details about the products believed to be involved can be found on the FSIS website.

The FSIS is advising consumers not to eat these products. They should be disposed of or returned to the place of purchase.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), fridges where the meat was stored should also be fully cleaned. Listeria monocytogenes can survive in the refrigerator and easily spread to other foods and surfaces.
