Tyson Recalls Nearly 8.5 Million Pounds of Chicken Due to Listeria Concerns – JP


Tyson Foods is recalling nearly 8.5 million pounds of frozen, fully cooked chicken due to concerns over contamination, the company announced Saturday.

The press release continued:

Tyson has been working closely with the U.S. Department of Agriculture on this recall, and 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.
