Tyson Foods Inc. Recalls Nearly 8.5 MILLION Pounds of Multiple Ready-To-Eat Chicken Products Due to Possible Listeria Contamination
|(July 3, 2021, 7:45 p.m.) -- Tyson Foods is recalling nearly 8.5 MILLION pounds of of ready-to-eat (RTE) chicken products that may be adulterated with Listeria monocytogenes.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) issued the announcement today (Saturday July 3.)
Consumers should not eat these products. Institutions should not serve these products. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
"The frozen, fully cooked chicken products were produced between December 26, 2020 and April 13, 2021 [and] 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 Department of Defense locations."
[FSIS release text] 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. Less commonly, persons outside these risk groups are affected.
Mayor Garcia acknowledged that shootings are up but said murders and other serious crimes have decreased from what they were in prior years. "Long Beach is safer today than it was 20 years ago, 30 years ago and 40 years ago," Mayor Garcia said. He added, "That does not diminish the seriousness of the crimes happening today. The amount of shootings that are happening today is unacceptable but the city from a safety perspective is safer today than 20, 30, 40 years ago."
Mayor Garcia said he's asked city management and various department heads to put together a robust "Safety Recovery Plan" that would include funding or needs to add dress not just policing but other needs in the city."
