But one of the largest brands is facing a new setback—almost 8.5 million pounds of its most popular chicken products are the subject of a new recall because they could be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Although the chicken was sent out as early as December, FSIS received word of potential illnesses on June 9. It then linked the cases to pre-cooked chicken from Tyson by taking samples from two establishments while working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The samples are closely related to Listeria, according to the recall notice.

So far, the illnesses have been limited to two in Texas and one in Delaware between April 6 and June 5, but the CDC says there could be more since it takes around three to four weeks to determine if someone who is sick is part of an outbreak.

"The true number of sick people in an outbreak is also likely higher than the number reported," it says in a report. "This is because some people recover without medical care and are not tested for Listeria."

The items were produced between Dec. 26, 2020, and April 13, 2021, and were shipped nationwide to retailers but also hospitals, nursing facilities, restaurants, schools, and Department of Defense locations, FSIS says. It does not specify which places the three illnesses are connected to, but the CDC investigation is ongoing.

FSIS is concerned that the products may still be in consumer and institutional freezers. If you find it in yours, do not eat it. Throw it away or return it to the place of purchase.

With symptoms like a fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, diarrhea, and convulsions, it can sometimes be difficult to connect an illness with Listeria contamination. If you have had any of these symptoms and believe you may have been in contact with the infected Tyson chicken included in the recall, the CDC recommends calling your healthcare provider right away. An illness for certain people can be more harmful than in others.

"In pregnant women, the infection can cause miscarriages, stillbirths, premature delivery or life-threatening infection of the newborn. In addition, serious and sometimes fatal infections in older adults and persons with weakened immune systems," FSIS says. "Persons 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."

Food recall: 30 Tyson Foods Inc. products might be infected with listeria

cleveland.com 07 July, 2021 - 12:45pm

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Tyson Foods Inc. is recalling about 8,492,800 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken products that might contain Listeria monocytogenes.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the recall.

The frozen, fully cooked products were produced by the Dexter, Missouri, company between Dec. 26, 2020, and April 13, 2021.

Thirty products are subject to the recall; here is the full list. Most contain the Tyson brand name, though some list pizza-chain and other restaurants are included. Bag sizes range from 12 ounces to almost 40 pounds. More than half are 10-pound bag products.

Items were shipped nationwide to retailers and institutions, including hospitals, nursing facilities, restaurants, schools and Department of Defense locations.

Products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. P-7089” on the bag or inside the USDA inspection mark.

The FSIS determined there is evidence linking the Listeria monocytogenes illnesses to precooked chicken produced at Tyson. Three listeriosis cases, including one death, occurred between April 6 and June 5, the FSIS found.

Consumption of food contaminated with L. monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women and their newborns. Listeriosis can cause fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms.

Listeriosis can be treated with antibiotics.

The FSIS is concerned some of the products might be in freezers. The products should be discarded or returned to place of purchase.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Tyson Foods at 855-382-3101. For details on recalls and food-safety questions, call the USDA meat and poultry hotline, 1-888-MPHotline (674-6854) or chat via Ask USDA 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays.

HEB chicken products included in Tyson recall

KRIS Corpus Christi News 07 July, 2021 - 12:45pm

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — If you've recently purchased chicken from H-E-B, you are urged not to eat it.

H-E-B announced that their supplier, Tyson Foods Inc. is recalling over 8 million pounds of ready-to-eat chicken products that "may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, as reported by Tyson Foods." This recall involves some Tyson Foods products and certain H-E-B brand products sold at H-E-B stores and South Flo Pizza locations in Texas.

The affected frozen, fully cooked chicken Tyson brand products from Tyson Foods were produced between December 26, 2020 and April 13, 2021. The affected H-E-B Meal Simple items were produced from Jan. 28, 2021 – July 4, 2021.

H-E-B has already removed these products from store shelves. The recalled chicken items by Tyson Foods have establishment number “EST. P-7089” on the product bag, or inside the USDA mark of inspection.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

H-E-B will issue a full refund to anyone who returns their chicken product to a store.

According to H-E-B, there have been "no confirmed reports of adverse reactions associated with products from H-E-B stores." They said that anyone concerned about an illness should contact a health care provider.

Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

You can find a full list of the recalled products, which include several H-E-B Meal Simple products, here.
