Tyson recalls 8 million pounds of ready-to-eat chicken

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced that Tyson Foods Inc. has recalled 8 million pounds of ready-to-eat chicken products that could be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes.

An investigation showed three serious illnesses related to listeriosis, one resulting in death, between April 6, 2021, and June 5, 2021.

The products were made between Dec. 26, 2020, and April 13, 2021.

Products being recalled have the number “EST. P-7089” on the bag or inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The CDC states that the risk of listeriosis is higher in people ages 65 and older, people with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women and their newborns.

Symptoms include fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions or even death.

Pregnant women could suffer pregnancy loss or premature birth and infections in newborns could cause serious illness or death.

People with higher risks that develop flu-like symptoms within two months of eating the contaminated food should seek medical care.
